Support for high growth businesses
Building collaborations and partnerships as well as understanding the needs of different markets are often the barriers stopping businesses expanding globally. This programme, therefore, will support businesses through that and follow-up activity to maximise their chances of success and achieve the greatest impact.
Three phases: get ready, visit, exploit
Getting ready for market
A ‘getting ready for market’ phase (prior to going out to the country) will ensure the businesses understand the market, how to operate in the market, understand the target sector/technology in the country, and receive help to find partners and arrange meetings in advance. This phase will include pitch training for each business so that they can easily articulate their business and value proposition.
