Queensland Small Business Digital Grant
As part of the Queensland state government’s attempts to support small businesses with digital transformation, a new digital grant is opening on 11th November and closing at 5 pm on the 10th December.
The grant is targeting small businesses who want to access new digital technologies and services.
How does it work?
The Queensland government will support businesses with a $10,000 grant for ‘matched funding’. This means that you yourselves as a business need to budget $10,000 for online strategies and initiatives and the government will match that with another $10,000.
The technology or service must fall under one of the four priority areas:
- content development (web pages, mobile apps, visual and audio media etc.)
- receiving payments or selling online
- specialised digital technology or software (business specific)
- digital planning, digital marketing strategy development, and digital training
So you could use this for advice, ongoing support, building a website, e-commerce solutions and so on. If in doubt, ask us and we’ll clarify for you.
Am I eligible?
The requirements are pretty broad and should cover most small businesses.
- fewer than 20 employees
- ABN & registered for GST
- have Queensland headquarters
- turnover of $2M or less
- not be insolvent
Do I have to do the application myself?
We have a partner who helps support businesses in applying for these grants and has a 70% success rate. But you can also do it yourself if you wish.
