We don’t often do public service announcements but this program was too good to pass up. The BC Government has recently introduced a program to help small and medium businesses move to an online business model.
From the program website:
The Launch Online Grant program provides funding to B.C.-based business to create an online shop and/or improve their e-commerce experience to attract new local customers and expand to new markets. The grant will pay for up to 75% of eligible expenses, up to a maximum of $7,500 per business.
This program is a great way to launch an online shop solution for your business or improve your current online offering. You can also use the program to pay for additional expenses involved with launching your online shop such as having a photographer take new pictures for your website, pay for your online advertising, improve your SEO, and much more.
Should you have any questions about the program, visit the launchonline.ca website. Should your company want to start with a project feasibility evaluation before applying for the grant, you can contact us and we would be happy to review your project.
