The team behind Navii
How Navii came about (the Official)
The Empowering Business to Go Digital program is a key outcome of Australia’s Federal Government’s Small Business Digital Taskforce report.
Navii was the outcome of this grant which aims to future-proof small businesses as they navigate the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, with new online tools to help them go digital and bounce back stronger than ever. Read Minister Andrew’s media release here.
The Real Story (the Unofficial)
2.1 million small businesses power the Australian economy yet the current ecosystem which is supposed to support them with information and advice to be smarter with digital is disjoined.
There are a lot of programs, a lot of courses, but where do you start when you are not even sure what you need?
✋ Meet Navii.
Born from the rather unusual union ~ we’re told it’s a first ~ of two passionate, small biz techies and a team of visionary founding fathers in Canberra who have followed the recommendations of the Small Business Digital Taskforce, Navii is an independent NGO being raised with one objective: to provide small businesses who don’t have the luxury of having a digital whizz on their team with the best possible resources and advice to take the next digital step.
“As we’re 100% independant (we’re a small business ourselves), we have free range in building the ultimate tools and resources as we see fit. However, thanks to the federal government having our back, an array of doors have opened for us to take your struggles to the table of the big players.”
