Digital Upgrade Program

The goal of this program is to assist for-profit small businesses auditing and updating customer facing and back-office functions. The Boone EDC Digital Upgrade program will be a 1:1 matching grant program. The businesses selected will be required to match their allocated awarded amount.

The program will be facilitated through a partnership of the Boone EDC and SB Code Works, a studio that specializes in designing and building projects in a digital space. The process will include assisting small business owners in a digital audit to understand current presence and working with each business to identify goals to grow and/or sustain their digital footprint. Strategies may include digital marketing, e-commerce integration, improving customer experience, and increasing efficiency.
