Exporting for Growth Prize competition

posted 16 Jan 2012, 02:44 by RiDO Rotherham

Are you a UK based small or medium sized company (SME) with a big idea but need an opportunity to help make this a reality?

Applications are invited from innovative SMEs throughout the UK to enter a competition for a new prize, The Exporting for Growth Prize, which UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) has launched for the most workable new export idea ready to be converted into a successful international opportunity. We are particularly interested to hear from first time or novice exporters.

The 12 possible winners throughout the UK will be innovative companies with the best exporting ideas which they can pitch successfully to a panel of business “experts”.

To be considered for entry applicants must have an active UK trading address and be an SME according to the European Union definition.

You need to be able to describe your new exporting idea and why you think the business experts should award you the prize, in no more than 200 words. The summary should give the key points of your exporting idea including how it is innovative and has the potential for export from the start. Once received this will be forwarded to the relevant region.
