The Indiana Small Business Development Center (SBDC) has partnered with the Indiana University Kelley School of Business to provide digital marketing and e-commerce assistance to small businesses affected by COVID-19.
Through project HOPE, IU Kelley students, under the direction of faculty members, work directly with client companies of the Indiana SBDC to complete digital marketing and e-commerce projects. Work performed by the students is typically completed within two weeks and includes services such as website development, website optimization, establishing an e-commerce and digital storefront, migration to cloud-based service, enabling remote operations, digital marketing, and/or improving online security.
Clients will receive a fully-resolved solution and the student will provide training/ education to the clients so they are fully sustainable moving forward.

- Have been in business as of Feb. 15, 2020.
- Be able to demonstrate a negative impact from COVID-19.
