What is "Help to Grow: Digital"?

Help to Grow: Digital is a new UK-wide scheme to help small and medium size businesses (SMEs) adopt digital technologies that are proven to increase their productivity.

The scheme will offer SMEs free and impartial advice on how technology can help your business. An online platform will help them to:

  • identify their digital technology needs
  • assess technology purchasing options
  • implement new technologies in their operations

The scheme will also offer eligible SMEs a grant token worth up to £5,000 to cover up to half of the costs of pre-approved, digital technology solutions.

The scheme was launched on 29th July, will run for 3 years, taking a phased approach over several waves. Each wave will provide the opportunity to roll out new technologies and functionalities for SMEs and vendors.

We expect the scheme will be open to SMEs towards the end of November.

Are you a technology vendor?

If you are in the business of delivering technology and want to be able to provide technology products through the scheme, then your application needs to be submitted by 8th September 2021.
