OutComes:

Created to support small and medium sized business sell into international markets, Get Exporting 2 provides a tailored programme of advice and assistance. The programme includes 12 hours of 1-2-1 support from an export advisor, match funding of up to £3,000 and a diverse programme of events, workshops and webinars.

Backed by the European Regional Development Fund, the programme is led by the Department for International Trade working closely with the LEP’s and Growth Hubs across the East of England. After supporting and working with over 240 companies over the past four years, the programme is closing in September 2021 and therefore is not currently accepting any new applications.

Highlights from the programme include providing funding of £545,744 to 196 companies, the creation of 168 jobs and 43 new, never seen before, products selling in markets across the globe.

 

Success story:

Superyachts Tenders & Toys was set up in 2011 by husband and wife, Josh and Claire Richardson, to supply yacht toys and tenders to superyacht owners. Based in Ipswich, the company began working with the Department of International Trade very early on in their business as they knew most of their business would be coming from overseas. After enrolling on the ERDF Get Exporting 2 programme, Superyachts Tenders & Toys utilised the 1-2-1 advisor support for strategic advice and introductions, as well as the grant funding for a market visit and attended several events being run within the programme. Since then the company have continued to expand globally and even won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise.
