Digital Enterprise is a new business support programme targeted at eligible growth. Focussing on small to medium sized businesses in the Leeds city region, their aim is to help the businesses develop their digital capacity through the Digital Growth Voucher scheme. By growing their digital capacity, the programme should thereby help them increase their overall performance (competitiveness, productivity and profitability).
The scheme aims to help eligible firms access and use digital/information and communication
technology to achieve business growth and raise competitiveness.
The Digital Growth Vouchers available range from £1000 to £5,000 and need to be matched by funding from the business. The scheme offers funding of 40%, up to a maximum of £5,000, towards the total value of an investment with the balance of 60% funded by the business.
Jonathan Scott, SD at NM says: “The voucher scheme will deliver support for small businesses in the Leeds area and we are delighted that such an initiative has been announced as it demonstrates the important role that digital technology has in business growth.”
