Business Innovation Grants: How a bit of ingenuity turned a grant scheme into a strategy that transformed a high street
Learn how we helped a borough implement a sustainable grant programme to give businesses a cash boost AND the skills and thinking to see them flourish for years to come – as well as lifting up the entire local business community.
In the next instalment of our 3-part series, we talk all things community building. It was pivotal to our strategy, and underlies nearly all of the activities which led to the Royal Borough’s transformation.
We recently detailed our comprehensive high street reopening campaign during our 18-month engagement with the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead in our case study. In this three-part blog series, we explore how this programme addressed public health, economic rejuvenation, and community building using our three-pronged approach.
The answer to our high street demise is in a word, community. This article was written by Kathy Kyle, Co-Founder of DigiKind, for publication in the Municipal Journal. A version was published in October 2021; it was entitled, “Lifting up our high streets.”
Nearly every week I chat with incredible business leaders who share their expertise and a gold mine of knowledge on how they have succeeded in their business. They share their wins, their losses, their successes, their failures and how they overcame their obstacles with grace, humour, and every week I am inspired and I know our attendees are, too. They tell me so — it is a joy to facilitate this process of networking, learning and collaboration. I’m also offering Lunch and Learn sessions every month, sometimes twice a month to help businesses upskill, focus on building digital skills, resilience, and sustainability and innovative practices.
Today Kathy Kyle’s perspective on “Lifting up the High Street” was published in The Municipal Journal.
In light of the government’s recent announcement regarding high street rejuvenation, local authorities, BIDs and businesses must focus on community-led solutions.
