In one of our previous blogs, we talked about the successful digital transformation of one of our clients' businesses.
With the help of digitization vouchers you can also increase the competitiveness and added value of your business. Take advantage of the grants available from April 2019 to September 2023, which are an incentive for micro, small and medium-sized enterprises to co-finance key digitization areas.
There are four vouchers for digital competencies, digital marketing, digital strategy and cyber security.
The project is led by the Digital Information Center (DIH Slovenia) in cooperation with the Slovenian Enterprise Fund (SPS) and the Ministry of Economic Development and Technology.
Digital vouchers are redeemable for those contractors who are listed in the Professional Catalog or. contractors at DIH Slovenia upon the approval of the special competent commission. Among them is the Hermes company. In the catalog of training providers DIH you can choose a contractor to your liking according to the identified needs.
The subsidy is returned to the contracting authority subsequently, from a minimum of EUR 1,000.00 to a maximum of EUR 9,999.99. However, the amount of the subsidy also depends on the type of voucher.
