Launch Webinar | Digitalise your Business guide

The ILO’s SIYB team launched the Digitalise Your Business (DYB) guide on the 4th of October at 10:00 CEST. The DYB package aims to support potential and existing businesses to benefit from the digital economy. The guide presents key concepts, basic requirements and main steps for businesses to build an online presence, sell products or services through the Internet and develop operations adapted to the digital world. By working with the DYB package, entrepreneurship trainers and potential and existing entrepreneurs will benefit from a series of dynamic activities, tips and real-life examples that will help understanding how to move forward on the business digitalisation journey. In the webinar, speakers presented recommendations on how to use the DYB guide, and discussed experiences of piloting it in the Philippines and in Nigeria.
