Boosting business to go digital


Posted 19 March 2018

Queensland small businesses wanting to boost their digital and online presence can now apply for funding of up to $10,000 under the latest round of Small Business Digital Grants.


Minister for Employment and Small Business Shannon Fentiman has announced the latest round of grants are open for application.

“I am thrilled that this funding will be a welcome boost for small businesses across Queensland to enhance their digital and online operations,” Ms Fentiman said.

“The grants of up to $10,000 will help business owners to work smarter and make the most of online opportunities.

“We know that small businesses are the engine room of a diverse Queensland economy and investing in their growth leads to more local jobs.”

According to Fentiman, funding is also helping recipients to purchase hardware such as drones and 3D printers.

“Empowering small businesses to be digitally savvy is a key driver of the Advancing Small Business Queensland Strategy 2016-20 to strengthen small business and help them to keep up in our fast growing economy.”

How can businesses apply?

To be eligible for funding, small businesses must have fewer than 20 employees, have an Australian Business Number (ABN) and be registered for GST, have a turnover of $2 million or less in the last financial year and be based in Queensland.

Applications close on Wednesday, 11 April 2018.
