Digital Solutions for Small Business

Adelaide Business Hub has partnered with the Melbourne Innovation Centre and Switch Tasmania to secure 1 of 3 national tenders to deliver the Commonwealth funded Digital Solutions Program to small businesses operating in South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania.

Collaborative relationships with the economic development teams from Metro and Regional Councils and Regional Development Australia (RDA) SA will be critical to promoting this opportunity to local small business owners.  Eligible businesses are firms employing less than 20 people.

The project brief requires that we support 75% of participating business owners operating in regional and rural SA and 25% within Metropolitan Adelaide. In total, 2760 clients will be assisted from September 2018 to June 2021.   (Regional businesses, 690pa and Metro businesses, 230pa).

Core Services

A fee of $55 including GST will apply once to each participating business, over the life of the program
This gives full access to all services including;:

3 HOUR WORKSHOPS

Access to multiple 3-hour small group sessions covering a range of digital solutions topics. Workshops will be delivered over 3 hours using a practical, learn by doing approach.

Face to Face Consulting

Immediately following each workshop, attendees can opt-in to receive 1-hour face to face consulting support to address a key, practical issue of importance to them.

Digital Solutions Portal

Access to the Digital Solutions portal to register for webinars, download resources,  apply for extra consulting support and connect to the program’s 3-year calendar of events
If business owners do not wish to follow up with one on one support, they will still come away from the workshop with a useful result and exclusive access to the portal.

We will start with the following priorities
