Description

Is your business involved in the construction industry – and you’d like to start exporting? Get ready to grow your business abroad with our help.

Scottish Development International is hosting an Export Incubator Programme in Glasgow, 3 and 4 October 2019. Learn how to reach international markets with confidence, even with Brexit impending, and get practical know-how on: international routes to market, international finance, contracts and logistics.

It’s the perfect primer for a company new to exporting and thinking about international growth.

What are the benefits?

By attending you'll learn:

  • How to effectively research and exploit international opportunities
  • What market entry options are right for your business
  • How to effectively navigate export documentation, from developing your international pricing strategy to what currency to be paid in
  • How to develop your value proposition for your international customer
  • The next steps for your business

You will also benefit from having the resources to develop your own international action plan to implement into your business. And you’ll have the opportunity to network with other like-minded businesses.

Where and When?

Our Export Incubator Programme is run over two days and will be held at the Scottish Enterprise Offices in Glasgow. You’ll need to attend both days to complete the programme.

Workshops are from 9:30am to 4pm on the following dates:

  • Thursday October 2019
  • Friday 4 October 2019

Scottish Enterprise's Preparing to Export Programme is fully funded to Scottish companies and is part funded through the European Structural and Investment Funds (investing in a smart, sustainable and inclusive future). You should note that this support is a form of state aid, and on attendance, it will count towards your overall De Minimis allowance.
