25eight provides high quality, fair cost education, mentoring and support to help time-poor businesses adopt innovative practices with a vision of decent work and economic development for all. Small to medium sized businesses (SMEs) are the backbone of local communities; providing opportunities for meaningful work, fostering local economies and account for 60-70% of jobs in most OECD countries. However, small to medium businesses have a much lower success rate than larger businesses and face greater hardships in extreme market conditions. SME's are less likely to have digital strategies or adopted digital transformations and lack the time, resources, confidence and knowledge to do so. 25eight provides personalised transformational learning programs that are designed to fit into busy schedules and incrementally build capability and confidence across a business maturity learning journey. We work directly with business, in partnership with government agencies and organisations to deliver to their business community or directly to skillseekers wanting to increase their employment opportunities in the SME sector. We also power Regional Growth Project to help regional and rural businesses drive innovation and increase competitiveness www.regionalgrowth.com.au
