Digitalboost is a new free-of-charge online platform that brings together leaders of small businesses and charities with a community of digital expert volunteers. 

It has three service offerings to help equip small businesses and charities with essential digital skills. “Boost Calls”, one-to-one mentoring sessions with digital volunteers from top technology, agency, consulting and finance firms, “Boost Workshops”, interactive, group masterclasses, run by digital experts on all digitalisation topics, as well as “Boost Skills”, useful online content on digitalisation.

Digital Boost has successfully recruited digital expert volunteers from top organisations such as BCG Digital Ventures, Google, Oxford University, McCann and Global Tech Advocates, all ready to mentor small businesses and charities.

The COVID-19 crisis has cast a painful spotlight on the lack of digitalisation of many small organisations. Being forced to shut physical locations, many small businesses and charities have no online revenue streams to fall back on. As consumers are expected to remain online post COVID-19, small businesses with a limited online presence will miss out on an ever-growing portion of business.

Digital Boost has been founded to counteract this trend. It is owned by Founders4Schools and has been built with the pro bono support of BCG Digital Ventures, a subsidiary of Boston Consulting Group.

Volunteer applications and requests from small businesses and charitable organisations are being accepted at www.digitalboost.org.uk and they are inviting other like-minded organisations from the digital community to get in touch at contact@digitalboost.org.uk.
