Amazon has announced that it has launched the Amazon Small Business Accelerator, to support more than 200,000 small businesses across the UK in response to the impact of the pandemic and lockdown on small businesses. Amazon has worked with Enterprise Nation to create the programme.
Doug Gurr, UK Country Manager, Amazon has said: "Small businesses are the lifeblood of the economy and by helping them we can help families, communities and the UK bounce back more quickly... Now the Amazon Small Business Accelerator with Enterprise Nation will provide thousands of offline and online businesses with the tools and support they need to succeed in the digital world, to reach customers through Amazon or any other service"
The Accelerator will help small businesses and startups through new online learning, an intensive week-long bootcamp to help 1,000 offline businesses get online, and access to free services, credits, training and support.
Oliver Dowden MP, Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, said: “It is vital that small businesses are able to develop the digital skills they need to help connect with customers online, expand their offer and drive their company’s growth. So it’s great to see Amazon and Enterprise Nation joining forces to help thousands of small businesses and startups take full advantage of our dynamic digital economy. I encourage any entrepreneur or small business owner looking to boost their digital presence to get involved.”
