If your business is in need of digital strategy or digital advertising activity, now is the time to apply for the next round of the Small Business Digital Grants Program.
The Queensland Government has opened applications for a sizeable small business grant that is aimed towards providing greater access to digital technologies and services.
Applicants can apply for matched funding of up to $10,000 (excluding GST) to be put towards purchasing, hardware, software and services – such as digital consulting and planning. For digital consulting and coaching purchases, up to 20% of the applicant’s co-contribution can be an in-kind element for their personal time within training sessions.
