Thousands of New Zealand's small business owners now have free access to digital expertise with the announcement of the Digital Boost initiative.

The NZ$10m program, included in the 2020-21 New Zealand Government's Budget response to COVID-19, is to be administered by the Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment - ki Hīkina Whakatutuki (MBIE) along with support from the private sector.
