Delivered as a product of the Humber Business Growth Hub, this three year scheme will provide a programme of interventions aimed at enabling SMEs in the Humber to create and/or adopt new products and processes, improve productivity and business resilience by utilising ICT more effectively to support business growth.

It will encourage and support the uptake of digital technologies, build business confidence in the use of such technologies and extend understanding of how digital technologies can be employed to solve business problems and deliver increased business competitiveness. This will be achieved by delivering the following activities:

  • One-to-one advice to determine the needs of the client and to develop an action plan of support required to achieve the objectives
  • A comprehensive programme of workshops / masterclasses, delivered by industry experts
  • Voucher support to SMEs based on ICT projects identified through one-to-one advice and support from specialist ICT Advisors
  • Broadband vouchers to cover part of the cost of upgrading to faster broadband for new start businesses
