Free website help available for small businesses

INDIANA – The Gayle and Bill Cook Center for Entrepreneurship and Indiana University Kelley School of Business are partnering to support the long-term economic recovery of Hoosier small businesses and entrepreneurs. 

Companies may apply for no-cost assistance to help establish or increase their online presence through website development, e-commerce support, and other digital tools and services. Work performed by the students is typically completed within two weeks and includes services such as website development, website optimization, establishing e-commerce and digital storefront, migration to cloud-based services, enabling remote operations, digital marketing, and/or improving online security.

Clients will receive a fully resolved solution and the students will provide training/ education to the clients so they are fully sustainable moving forward.

To date, nearly 500 companies have already participated or are currently participating in the program. Those companies surveyed at the conclusion of work have voiced overwhelming satisfaction with the work performed by the students – 98 percent were satisfied with the work performed.
