Do you want to accelerate digital adoption in your company?
Studies show that Canadian businesses who use digital technologies enjoy higher sales growth and are better at handling economic shocks and exporting. Conversely, entrepreneurs who lack a digital strategy don’t perform as well and risk getting left behind.
Join us on Wednesday, August 23 as we are joined by Sarah Lloyd, Business Centre Manager at BDC, who will present highlights from their recent study on digital maturity and why there’s never been a better time to invest in technology!
In this interactive session you'll learn how to apply for Canadian Digital Adoption Program (CDAP) to access the 0% loan, subsidies and expertise to accelerate your digital adoption. This new program was designed to help businesses with more than $500,000 of revenues invest in all types of technologies, from software, computers and online technology to larger ERP or CRM systems.
Key takeaways include:
- Better understanding of digital technologies and why they help companies perform better
- Find out more about Canadian Digital Adoption Program (CDAP) and why it’s a can’t-miss-opportunity to go digital
- How you could get a 0% interest loan of up to $100K
