To support more small business owners to realise the benefits of digitalisation – defined as improving business processes through greater use of digital tools and adopting digital business practises – MBIE is partnering with the private sector to deliver the following initiatives within the Small Business Digital Boost™ programme:
1. Digital Boost™ Spotlight Series (Initiative 1 – Energise) – where small business owners who have recently transformed their business by adopting digital tools and digital ways of working share their experiences to inspire other small business owners. This will include small businesses from a wide range of sectors, including tourism;
2. Digital Boost™ Skills Training and Support (Initiative 2 – Educate) – focused on building the skills, confidence and trust required to enable small business owners to realise the benefits of working digitally and/or with digital tools. The training will be available to any small business that has begun to explore the digital world and wants a boost to accelerate their change; and
3. Digital Boost™ Directory (Initiative 3 – Embed) – working with the private sector to bring together the most relevant digital tools, technologies, products and services to support small businesses (including those in hospitality and associated with the tourism sector) with becoming digital, including the potential for subsidised offerings or assistance.
This Request for Proposal (RFP) is seeking responses for Initiative 2 of the Small Business Digital Boost™ programme – Digital Skills Training and Support.
The Digital Boost™ Spotlight Series and Digital Boost™ Directory are being developed separately. The successful Respondent(s) will be expected to connect and interface with the other parts of the Digital Boost™ programme to ensure a seamless experience for small businesses, which will be facilitated by MBIE and our partners.
