About the Institute

Empowering small business owners with new ideas.

Corporations are investing a huge amount of resources into innovation, design and technology skills for their organisations. We don't want to see small businesses left behind and unprepared for the future.

Technology can be scary for people. Our mission is to remove that fear and replace it with excitement for the future.
