What’s on Offer?

Export for Growth is a part-funded project between the European Regional Development Fund and the Department for International Trade, delivered by Business West, which over the next few years aims to engage with and support over 1,000 local SMEs to find new profitable customers in overseas markets, resulting in the creation of 850+ new jobs in the South West of England region.

Export for Growth has two core strands of support;

  1. Export Essentials – for SME’s who are considering export for the first time or looking to build upon their limited international trade activity.

Our team of experienced, dedicated international specialists includes International Trade Advisers, Market Specialists, and Market Researchers who support businesses through workshops, one to one support and advice, desk based research and company visits.
