A new public-private partnership has been launched to improve access to digital technology and training for small businesses, to take advantage of new opportunities through e-commerce.

Small Business Minister Stuart Nash joined business, corporate and industry leaders to launch the 20-member Digital Boost Alliance at The Mind Lab in Auckland which brings multinationals like Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Xero, HP and Amazon alongside the Warehouse Group and MBIE. 

The government is investing $44m in its new Digital Boost programme unveiled at Budget 2020, which will provide business training courses for SMEs.
