The Digital Growth Programme

Organisations across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire can now benefit from a range of fully-funded workshops, the opportunity to receive financial help and free one to one business advice to help introduce new digital technology with the support from the Digital Growth Programme.

The Digital Growth Programme (formerly known as eBusiness Club) managed by East Midlands Chamber (Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire) is a programme part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund and offers an array of awareness-raising seminars, strategic action-planning workshops, hackathons and conferences available for SMEs registered on the programme and is designed to help enterprises to embrace new technology, learn about new software and gain digital skills.

Going digital has different meanings for different businesses, but no matter what, you can't stand still. Last year 35% of SME’s within the East Midlands had no basic digital skills, with up to 54% not having a website.*
