Is your business eligible for a $20,000 digital transformation?

Australian small businesses owners could be forgiven of being sick of calls to ‘go digital’. But it’s not often that the government offers to help fund their use of technology. This week, the Federal Government announced it will provide 100 small businesses with a digital transformation valued at up to $20,000. Businesses will receive hardware, software and "digital skills training". The initiative is called the Small Business Digital Champions Project and aims to help businesses move from paper to “online systems”. That might include helping businesses to move to cloud accounting services, develop content for apps and websites, or deploy a “full suite” of cloud-based business management tools. The government isn’t providing cash, mind you – it is looking to the private sector to contribute equipment services and training to the project.
