Since October 2016, the team at Digital Enterprise have been helping small and medium sized enterprises (SME) across the Leeds City Region to improve their performance by investing in appropriate digital technologies and expertise.


The programme is partly funded by the European Union (European Regional Development Fund 2014-20), the Leeds City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and nine of the local authorities that make up the Leeds City Region.


Across all strands of the Digital Enterprise business support programme, businesses have attributed the support gained from grant funding and business support intervention as a key reason for their increased use of new technology deployment and digital solutions within their business. Positive impacts have included increased confidences, the ability to access new markets and customers, the creation of new jobs, a more flexible workforce, and increased profitability.


Technological and digital transformations funded and supported by the Digital Enterprise programme have included the acquisition of new software, enhanced websites, installation of VOIP, new IT hardware and the ability to upgrade digital connectivity and broadband.

Through the success of the programme, Digital Enterprise is delighted to launch The Digital Enterprise 100 campaign which will profile and celebrate 100 of Leeds City Region’s most innovative digital businesses.
