Birmingham Connectivity Voucher Launch
Official launch of the Connectivity Voucher Scheme - a free event for SMEs, Charities and Social Enterprises in Birmingham
The Connectivity Voucher Scheme is to help fund a new faster broadband connection for small and medium-sized businesses, charities, social enterprises and other not-for-profit organisations. It is funded by the Government's Urban Broadband Fund and the European Regional Development Fund.
Digital Birmingham will cover up to £3,000 of the connection costs for eligible organisations (that’s usually enough to pay for all the work) and it’s a grant not a loan, so you don’t have to pay it back.Full details of the grant process and the benefits of the connection scheme will be explained at the launch.
You will be hearing from the Leader of the Council Sir Albert Bore, Global Futurist Rohit Talwar - profiled by the Independent Newspaper as one of the top ten global future thinkers and considered an authority on how technology is transforming business and society. Raj Mack Head of Digital Birmingham, the Internet Service Providers Association and local SMEs with enthralling case studies.
There is also an exhibition with internet service suppliers who are there to offer advice and answer your questions.
