Overview

In today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape, staying competitive requires businesses to innovate and adapt.

Navigating modern technology can be complex, but it is crucial for SMEs to expand in this digital era. Embracing advanced digital solutions opens new opportunities for business operations and growth, ensuring seamless access to information, efficient workflows, and robust security.

To support SMEs in North Wales, Ambition North Wales, funded by the UK government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, is launching a fully funded support programme.

The SME Connectivity Assessments project provides businesses with the guidance needed to integrate advanced wireless technologies, such as 5G, LoRaWAN, and WiFi networks, along with transformative solutions like Artificial Intelligence. By leveraging these technologies, businesses can enhance performance, increase productivity, optimise efficiency, and gain a competitive edge.

We have a limited number of opportunities available and are expecting a strong response. The project will operate over a short timescale with an early closing date of 19 July 2024.

Please be advised that as this programme has limited availability, and applications will undergo careful assessment to ensure suitability. This initiative aims to curate a select group of participants, maximising the impact of each consultation. The insights from the initial consultations will be used to inform a high-level report with recommendations for future similar interventions for the benefit of North Wales businesses.
