Small Business Digital Champions

For: 
Small Business Digital Champions Project - https://digitalchampions.jobs.gov.au

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 1.

Starting in late March 2019, 100 Australian small businesses will receive a digital transformation for their business valued at up to $20,000. Their success stories will be showcased among the small business community to inspire others to improve their digital potential.

15 of the 100 businesses will then be selected to become Digital Champions, each paired with a high-profile small business leader who has leveraged technology for business success. This innovator will provide individualised advice and guide them on their digital transformation journey. The journeys of the Digital Champions will be featured in online, interactive case studies that will provide the small business community with real-life insights into the business benefits of adopting digital technology.

Applications have now closed to be one of 100 Australian small business owners who will receive a digital transformation for their business, valued at up to $20,000.

You are still able to access other Government small business digital support services through the Australian Small Business Service and the Cyber Security Small Business Grants Program.

Expressions of interest to become a Digital Mentor, an industry association Trusted Digital Advisor or to become a Corporate Partner are still open.
