From elprimerodelalista.es we give you the keys to opt for this public aid, financed by the European Union through the Next Generation European Funds, whose objective is based on promoting the digitisation of SMEs, micro-SMEs and the self-employed to help modernise the business fabric.
Despite being increasingly seen as a necessity rather than a possible option, digitalisation is still a pending issue for many Spanish companies.
In fact, according to the ‘Digital Adaptation 2022’ study carried out by IESE Business School, only 25.4% of Spanish companies recognise that they are in an advanced digitalisation phase, while 59.5% state that they are in the process of transformation and more than 15% recognise that they have not yet begun the digitalisation process, which shows that there is still a great deal of transformation work to be done.
Promoting this necessary transformation is the aim of the Digital Kit programme, an initiative promoted by the Spanish government, which aims to subsidise the implementation of digital solutions available on the market in order to achieve a significant advance in the level of digital maturity. With the first grants already awarded through the Red.es entity, the new calls are presented as an unbeatable opportunity for SMEs and the self-employed to think about long-term transformation plans and to consider a business model that is more digitally focused and profitable.
However, according to official data from last May, less than 30% of Spanish SMEs have applied for these government grants in the first call for applications for the programme. Lack of knowledge about them, or how to apply for them, as well as the lack of resources available to do so, have meant that many have not yet considered accessing them.
It is very difficult for an SME to keep up to date with all the grants available and to know all the procedures that have to be carried out to access them, which is why elprimerodelalista.es offers an advice and support service through its website for all those SMEs and self-employed workers who need external support in the processing of this and other grants financed by the Next Generation European Funds.
