Embracing digital couldn’t be easier

Digital Support for SMEs

The last two months have seen many of us depend on digital technologies to keep connected. There has been a significant rise in people making online purchases, working remotely, and adapting to new and different ways of working. It has also made online learning more accessible than ever. Why not broaden your skills and knowledge, by using this time to explore and get up-to-speed with latest digital trends.

The Digital Growth Programme is delivering a range of webinars for businesses. Whether you're new to the digital landscape or want to keep-up-to-date with digital marketing techniques, you can access a range of topics including website planning, ecommerce, social media, automation and remote working.

They are free to attend – the programme, managed by East Midlands Chamber (Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire), is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund, the Chamber and Leicestershire County Council designed to help SMEs embrace new digital technology to improve productivity to aid growth.

Finance

Eligible SMEs can also access financial support through grant funding to help with the introduction of new systems and software to improve business performance and productivity. Grants from £2,000 to £25,000 are available for a variety of technology-based projects.
