GrowJO (Talent) aims at incentivizing digital firms to create new jobs in the digital economy, by providing employment subsidies that will cover up to 50% of new employees salaries for up to 6 months. The incentive opportunity objectives are:
● Support growth plans for digital firms
● Help build/scale digital firms’ activities
● Generate local job opportunities
● Encourage the development of the digital sector in proximate cities that may, otherwise, not directly benefit from the digital economy’s growth
The first round of application submission is open from 13 September 2020 until 15 October 2020. Subsequent rounds will be later announced and processed, and until funds are fully committed. Each round will filter, assess and award applications against eligibility criteria. The incentive opportunity closure is contingent upon funding availability.
