Digital Boost launched
Founders4Schools and BCG Digital Ventures have launched Digital Boost, with support from DCMS. Digital Boost will host an online community of digital experts who will offer one to one digital support for small businesses and charities free of charge to help them improve their digital capability to grow and prosper.
As you are aware, the Covid-19 crisis has presented many challenges for small businesses and charities, particularly in building digital capability. In fact, there is a huge gap between digitally high and low tech organisations by forcing 67% of UK SMEs to temporarily close business. Digital Boost has been created to provide much-needed digital support for small organisation in response to this.
Digital Boost has three service offerings to help equip small businesses and charities with essential digital skills. “Boost Calls”, one-to-one mentoring sessions with digital volunteers from top technology, agency, consulting and finance firms, “Boost Workshops”, interactive, group masterclasses, run by digital experts on all digitalisation topics, as well as “Boost Skills”, useful online content on digitalisation.
