Businesses that have been adversely affected by the pandemic in Northamptonshire are invited to apply for vouchers to support future digital growth opportunities.
The Growth through Digital Innovation (GDI) is a new voucher support scheme that helps businesses and charities to bounce back by providing them with a voucher worth £1,000 to fund website design, digital branding and online marketing services.
The scheme is supported by 123 Internet, Natwest and the Northamptonshire Chambers of Commerce who, in the months ahead, will be working together to support businesses across the region in their development by offering a range of services and programmes.
Scott Jones, of 123 Internet, said:
“The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way many of us are doing business and we know that a lot of businesses are re-evaluating what they do online.
“Through the GDI scheme, we want to support businesses across the region as they bounce back and help them continue to develop digital tools for the future.”
Successful applicants will receive a £1,000 discount on a range of digital services, redeemable with the marketing agency specified on the voucher.
Applications for the GDI programme are open until 31 October. As of today (October 9), 40 businesses have applied for this scheme, totalling £40,000 worth of vouchers.
