Answered By:

The BEIS Business Basics programme is a central government funded programme aimed at increasing adoption of technologies across all sectors of the economy.

By partnering with the London School of Economics, Capital Enterprise and CognitionX, we are supporting SMEs in London's retail and hospitality sectors to test basic data-driven tools that will help them reach more customers and do more business.

The project will open for applications in April 2019 and will report in Q4 2019/20. This project aims to support around 200 companies.
