Third Phase of Digital Growth Voucher scheme now live!
Up to £10,000 funding is up for grabs for B2B SMEs based in Leeds City Region with the launch of the third phase of the popular Digital Growth Vouchers Scheme by Digital Enterprise.
The story so far
The first phase of the Digital Growth Voucher Scheme had to be closed early at the end of March 2017 after it attracted over 470 SMEs who were keen to take up the opportunity to invest in business-enhancing technologies. Phase 2, which ran from October to December 2017, then saw a further 171 eligible firms being awarded financial support of up to £5,000. Digital Enterprise are looking forward to seeing the same high levels of interest for Phase 3, which launched on 23rd April 2018.
Bigger & better
Phase 3 sees some significant changes, which are as follows. Firstly, vouchers are now only available to SMEs who have operated in a Business to Business environment for at least 12 months, rather than just six. Also, the vouchers available have increased significantly, starting from £2,000 and can be as high as £10,000 with the project values now being set from £4,000, with £11,000 being a maximum. Another increase is that now 50% right up to 90% of the project value can now be subsidised by the Phase 3 Digital Growth Vouchers.
Proving your project’s worth
This Phase is expected to attract many more eligible SMEs and as such businesses are now not awarded on a first come, first serve basis but vouchers will be allocated on a competitive basis. Applications will be compared to each other and ranked according to a project’s outcome including potential for digital transformation, projected economic impact in terms of the creation of sustainable jobs, as well as profitability and efficacy enhancements.
Transformation via digital connectivity
As with the previous phases, the investment types include the acquisition of I.T. hard and software, as well as digital transformation. As CityFibre’s delivery partner, Diva have been helping businesses in Leeds and Bradford connect to the ultrafast Gigabit Fibre network, which has super-charged their efficiency, profitability and turnover, and which, in turn, each produce a positive impact on our economy. We are also able to help businesses upgrade their phone systems and adopt VOIP telephony, for which B2B SMEs can apply for a voucher.
Ready, steady, go!
The Digital Growth Vouchers are now live and will run until Friday 15th June 2018 – chances are they will close early as was the case with the previous phases, so don’t delay and get in touch.
