Boost Lancashire's Business Growth Hub

Digital First

Here at Digital First we are a multi-skilled and experienced team of creatives, marketing and digital experts with a long record of accomplishment of working with small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and blue chip companies, helping them promote and grow their business using digital technology.

Ultimately, we want to help you to grow your business by becoming more efficient, increasing your profits, and creating jobs. The overall aim of the Digital First project is to develop sustainable links between local business and higher education, with a view to sharing knowledge, good business practice and assisting companies that would benefit from research input.

Who is it for?

To benefit from the Digital First project your business must meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • Located in the Lancashire region
  • Trade business to business (B2B)
  • Employ 250 employees or less
  • Have either an annual turnover that is equal to or less than 50million Euros or a balance sheet total that is equal to or less than 43million Euros.
