All member states within the EU have the opportunity to nominate two entries to the competition. The aim is to draw attention to successful initiatives that support entrepreneurship and small businesses at national, regional and local level. By showing successful examples, knowledge can be spread between the member countries.

The Swedish grants have been selected by the Swedish Growth Agency. Compare's initiative Be Digital competes in the category "Improvement of the business environment and support for digital transition". There are a total of six different categories in the European Enterprise Promotion Awards.

Winning combination

According to Mikael Holmgren, responsible for competence and business development issues at Compare, it is above all the combination of personal advice and the work of matching companies and suppliers that are Be Digital's main strengths.

- It is fantastic fun that we have been nominated and a receipt that we are making interesting investments that arouse national interest. That Be Digital is now also highlighted internationally is of course extra fun, says Mikael Holmgren.

So far, more than 50 companies have received personal advice through Be Digital to start their digital transformation. Via the online matching service, there are more than 200 providers of digital services that can help companies further on their digital journey. The matching service also has a function where businesses can send requests directly to suppliers.

Digital toolbox

On Be Digital's website, there is also a digital toolbox and other knowledge-enhancing material available, for example a digitization guide, inspiration case, a podcast and information on support that can be applied for to digitize your business.

When all countries have nominated their entries, an EU jury will select a final field. The winners are then crowned in November at a gala in Slovenia.
