Is that you?

  • You possess innate business common sense. While many business programs may not dive deeply into the SME landscape, it's crucial for you to intuitively understand and navigate the unique challenges faced by small to medium-sized enterprises.
  • You're solution-driven, with a knack for addressing pain points stalling businesses.
  • Your grasp on technology's role in driving SMEs towards financial, operational, and growth objectives is unparalleled.
  • Armed with impeccable writing skills, you distill research into concise, impactful communication.
  • You are not a perfectionist and understand the importance of delivering projects on time.

  • Value autonomy at your workplace.
  • Like starting projects from scratch and can swiftly move from one project to another.
  • Are curious about diverse industry environments: Retail, Manufacturing, Transportation, Hospitality, Healthcare, and more.
  • Value breadth of experience more than specializing in one area.

Responsibilities & Duties:

  • Work on projects that assess the current state of an SME, its business objectives, and the obstacles hindering their success. After this assessment, determine how technology can assist SMEs in achieving these objectives.
  • Acquaint yourself with prospective technologies, assessing costs, implementation strategies, and compatibility with SMEs' technical competencies.
  • Craft comprehensive reports detailing research insights and potential solutions.
  • Spread awareness of the government program to regional centers of influence for SMEs such as Accounting firms, and Chambers of Commerce.

For success in this role, you will need to:

  • Conduct in-depth interviews with technology vendors to ensure a precise fit for the problem.
  • Avoid generic solutions and customize recommendations based on each business's unique operations and technical expertise.
  • Bring a business-oriented background and expertise in business report writing.
  • Demonstrate proficiency in evaluating digital technologies and crafting high-level implementation plans.
