FREE support, worth £5,000, to help you prepare your business for a future where technology accelerates growth

Although most small busninesses recognise the need to adopt digital technology they often struggle to find the time and don't have access to the knowledge required to:

  • Identify which technologies could add value to their business
  • Judge which options offer value for money and will deliver the highest return on investment
  • Understand how different technologies will integrate with their existing systems and processes
  • Implement and manage the technology on an ongoing basis

With the expertise of our Digital Technology Consultants and a broad range of other options, Digital Tech Cumbria is here to help you identify and implement the solutions that are right for you, so you can find and keep customers, grow your sales revenue, operate efficiently and effectively manage a remote and flexible team.

Who is it for?

We're here to support Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) across Cumbria. The project is partly funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). We're able to support tourism, manufacturing, professional services and a wide number of businesses that sell directly to other businesses. You need to have been trading for at least 12 months, be registered in Cumbria and not be owned by a non-SME organisation. Places are limited and on a first come, first served basis.
