The Notbinary Alpha team is working with a Government Department to explore how government can best help businesses to navigate the information and support available to them (online). To make sure that we understand businesses’ needs and that we build the right thing for them, we would like to have interviews with a variety of business owners and senior managers.
Taking part will involve a 1-2-1 interview which will last no longer than an hour and can be done either face-to-face or remotely. These interviews will be taking place at a time that suits you between now and Wednesday 18th March.
By taking part, you will help us to build a better service for small businesses. We are offering a £50 Amazon voucher as a thank you for your time.
Who we’re hoping to speak to owners or senior managers of businesses that:
- Have 0 – 50 employees
- Have been trading for longer than 1 year
- Non-digital/tech companies/businesses/shops would be great

Is there carbon in your cloud?
With all the government clients I have worked with ‘cloud first’ is always followed (or at least aspired to) and frequently talked about. Guidance on how to create and implement a cloud hosting strategy refers to capability, cost and data storage requirements of your organisation's unique set of needs, but not the needs of the planet.
Avoid learning too many lessons from these ‘unprecedented times’
The big thing I keep reminding people is while there will be lessons to learn from all this we need to take them with a grain of salt. These are not normal times and the change in attitudes is probably a lot more fragile than some people think.
Impact beyond Alpha
4-8 weeks of a Discovery or Alpha project is a fleeting time for us to accomplish our mission: to help institutions embrace the opportunities of the internet era. What can we try to extend our impact beyond the confines of the project.
