Small Business Digital Champions
Australia’s small businesses can unlock the potential of technology to revolutionise their business and extend their reach. When small businesses are digitally engaged, they are 50 per cent more likely to be growing revenue, eight times more likely to be creating jobs, seven times more likely to be exporting, and 14 times more likely to be innovating new products or services.
100 Australian small businesses will receive a comprehensive digital transformation of their business valued at up to $18,500.
15 of the 100 businesses have been selected to become Digital Champions and will receive additional support from a high-profile Digital Mentor. Digital Mentors will share their experiences and provide guidance and insight on how to get the most out of the digital transformation.
The digital transformation will include an assessment of the business’ needs, development of a personalised digital transformation plan and digital assistance that may include hardware, software, online content development, or digital training to help them thrive in their particular field.
The experience of the Digital Champions will be filmed over the 12 month period and showcased to the Australian small business community through online interactive case studies to highlight and share the benefits that digital technology can have for small business.
