Businesses can access free and impartial online support on how technology can boost their business performance.

Many businesses have had to diversify and adapt how they do business during the pandemic in order to survive. Help to Grow: Digital will help businesses build on these new ways of working.

The support businesses will receive through Help to Grow: Digital will also help them to plan for the future, ensure they are being innovative in how they do business, and give them the best chance to compete and grow.

The financial discount is available for software that helps businesses:​
