Asked by: Willie Coffey, Kilmarnock and Irvine Valley, Scottish National Party
Date lodged: 2 July 2021
To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on the establishment of a digital fund for small businesses within the Kilmarnock and Irvine Valley area and how that fund will be administered.
Current status: Answered by Kate Forbes on 19 July 2021
We are delighted with the progress on the reopening of the DigitalBoost Fund and will meet the 100 days deadline that we have set. This will be a national fund supporting businesses to increase their digital capacity and capabilities and we would encourage businesses in the Kilmarnock and Irvine Valley area to apply once it reopens. We will work with our enterprise support partner, Business Gateway, and delivery partners, LESL (Lancashire Enterprise Services Limited), to successfully administer and deliver this fund.
