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.

What do I do next?

If you are interested, please submit the following form and we’ll talk you through the steps you need to take to make sure you’re ready to apply once the grant opens.
