Grants to help small business launch into digital economy

28 November 2016 –

The Queensland Government has grants of up to $10,000 available to help Queensland small businesses. The grants can be spent on purchases of hardware, software, and services (such as digital coaching).

The Palaszczuk Government wants to help local small businesses embrace digital technologies and make the most of online business opportunties.

Our small businesses will be in a stronger position to respond to competition, embrace new opportunties, and grow into globally competitive businesses by using technologies, working smarter and fostering an entrepreneurial culture.

The Digital Grants Program is part of a $22.7 million Budget commitment by the Palaszczuk Government to provide additional support for our small businesses – which includes the creation of the Office of Small Business.

Helping small business to enter the digital economy is a key part of our strategy to empower our small business and support the entrepreneurs of tomorrow.

By expanding our support for small business we are establishing Queensland as the state for small business to start, grow, and employ.
