Sapoto @ Google Digital Garage

When Tim Berners-Lee published the first ever web site in December 1990, few could have imagined his WWW creation as the information, social and commerce powerhouse it is today.

Today, 3.6 billion people worldwide actively use the Internet - that's 30 times more than 20 years ago. Such exponential growth has brought down barriers to businesses significantly. In the past, starting a business required an expensive physical shop and a large amount of money. Today, all is needed is a domain name and a couple of mobile computers.

However, for startups and SMEs today, the increasing size of the digital pond has left them at a loss as to how a small fish like them can make a sufficiently loud noise.

Google's Digital Garage platform was introduced two years ago to help businesses and nonprofits approach this prominent difficulty. Inside are lessons around 23 different topics, from social media to search and everything inbetween, which any individual can start taking for free - you don't even need a Google account!

Upon completing the entire set of lessons, you will receive a certificate from Google, recognised by IAB Europe
