£1.4m SME support programme launched by Newcastle tech company
A Newcastle technology company has announced that it has launched a £1.4m programme to support SMEs in lockdown.
Sage, an enterprise software company, has launched the Small Business Growth Programme to help small businesses recover from the effects of coronavirus.
The new scheme will support up to 62,500 businesses, and will work in conjunction with the North of Tyne Combined Authority’s £10m digital growth programme.
Steve Hare, CEO of Sage, commented: “The North East isn’t just in our heritage, it’s vital to the UK’s future success.
“The region offers us access to a unique pool of talent and digital skills, and in the past few months our colleagues here have been at the forefront of helping small businesses get vital support.
“Now we must look ahead and do our bit to help small businesses and anyone wanting to start a business, to come back stronger in 2021.
“I am proud that Sage is stepping up to help small businesses in the North of Tyne use technology to best effect as they look to rebuild their future.”
