Gateway to Global Growth
How Can Gateway Help Me?
International business is complex even for the most experienced of exporters. Markets change. Opportunities come and go - especially in the current climate. Nothing stays the same except your need to maximise your proven potential in global markets.
Gateway to Global Growth is a service for experienced exporters which offers a 12 month programme of strategic support tailored to your needs to help grow your company's business overseas. Solutions could be complex, requiring both UK Trade & Investment services and those offered by other public or private sector organisations. Gateway is designed to help you achieve your objectives in a number of ways.
What does Gateway Offer?
A strategic review with an experienced International Trade Adviser to assess trade development needs and construct a next steps action plan; guidance and mentoring from export professionals and support on specialist subjects. It also includes access to UK Trade & Investment’s international network; assistance with market research, language and culture and networking opportunities to learn from other exporters.
Gateway helps you to maximise the opportunity and reduce the risk in entering new markets; overcome barriers to new and difficult markets; develop company skills and save time and money in achieving international trade goals.
Eligibility and duration of programme
