Digital Confidence Project

Understanding Small Businesses with North East Victoria

Startup Shakeup supports work on Digital Capacity for small businesses throughout North East Victoria.

Succeeding in the new online world relies on digital inclusion, and our region has had poor ratings in digital ability, access and affordability. However, whilst we have had demographic information from the Australian Digital Inclusion Index, we knew nothing bar anecdotal information about the digital literacy of those in business.

So we did some research measuring the digital literacy of those working in SMEs across the region. We then took these results to inform responses that enable every business to access & use digital tools effectively.

The project was funded by the Regional Digital Fund (Department of Jobs, Precincts, and Regions) and was done in partnership with the ARC Centre of Excellence for Automated Decision-Making and Society at RMIT and the Centre for Social Impact Swinburne supported by Telstra.
