DIGITAL MAIN STREET
The Digital Main Street Project seeks to help small, main street businesses across Ontario improve their adoption of technologies to better promote themselves online, sell online and even run back-office processes online.
For Hamilton businesses, the City of Hamilton, Hamilton Business Centre – in partnership with the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce – will be assisting eligible businesses within the 13 Business Improvement Areas (BIAs).
Every business that wants to participate in the grant must first take an online assessment of their current technology use. Based on the assessment, the business will then develop a Digital Transformation Plan based on a template that will be provided which will detail their goals and what technologies they need to achieve those goals.
To help put the plan into action, the business can then apply for a one-time grant of $2,500 to help with the costs of adopting the required technology.
The Digital Main Street Transformation Plan application (grant application) deadline is 11:59pm on Tuesday, December 31st, 2019.
