Details of a $20 million digital capability package for small businesses were announced as part of the COVID-19 economic response. The key objective will be to help small business owners realise the benefits of becoming more digital and give them the know-how to do so.
The key initiatives include:
- a Spotlight Series where small business owners who have recently transformed their business by becoming digital can share their experiences with other small business owners
- providing digital skills training and support
- working with the private sector to put together the most relevant digital tools, technologies, products and services to support small businesses
- industry specialists appointed by Qualmark to provide a series of workshops and one-on-one advice.
The MBIE is currently working out the details of this support package and more information will be available soon.
