Digital Enterprise has launched the third phase of its Digital Growth Vouchers scheme that awards up £10,000 to SMEs that require a broadband connectivity upgrade or new IT hardware or software.
The scheme is open for SMEs in the Leeds city region with no more than 250 employees and a turnover that does not exceed £43million. Digital Growth Vouchers can be used to fund at least 50per cent of the cost of the new technology.
Muz Mumtaz, Digital Enterprise’s programme manager, said: “It’s great news for Harrogate and the rest of the Leeds city region that we have been able to reopen the Digital Growth Voucher scheme. It has proven to be incredibly popular with smaller businesses who are often unable to invest in transformational digital technology under their own steam.
“Our scheme can provide significant funding for businesses and applying is quick and easy to do. We have a limited number of vouchers available and I would urge businesses who are interested in taking advantage of the scheme to apply now before it is too late.”
The deadline for submission of applications is June 15.
