"Digital Now" - funding for the digitisation of small and medium-sized German businesses 

Digitalisation opens up new opportunities for SMEs and is an essential factor for competitiveness and future economic success. Lean and intelligent work and production processes, networking with customers and suppliers or efficient customer acquisition are decisive aspects in the investment decision, e.g. for a new and innovative software solution.

To make it easier for SMEs to implement digitisation, the new funding programme of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology "Digital Jetzt - Investitionsförderung für KMU" (Digital Now - Investment Support for SMEs) offers financial grants to stimulate corresponding investments in small and medium-sized enterprises.

Grants are available for:

  • Investments in digital technologies and
  • Investments in the qualification of employees on digital topics.

You can find more information about the funding and how to apply here.


Regional funding programmes for the digitalisation of your business processes

Additional funding programmes for digitisation measures and/or investments in IT infrastructure and IT security for SMEs are also offered by various federal states such as Bavaria, Hesse e.g. 

Information on funding for other federal states in digitisation measures can be found, if necessary, on the websites of your responsible state government, the regional funding office or at your chamber of industry and commerce.
