The Business Lincolnshire Growth Hub has launched a new business support service aimed at helping SMEs move into exporting.
The scheme includes face-to-face advice sessions with an experienced export professional as well as a series of interactive workshops across the region.
In seven half-day workshops, Business Lincolnshire’s facilitators will introduce SMEs to the importance of exporting for growth, and make sure attendees are as prepared as possible to enter their target market.
Along with these workshops, Business Lincolnshire’s advisor Mike Stokes will be offering face-to-face export advice for Lincolnshire-based SMEs.
“Global trade has customarily been viewed as the domain of large companies, but SMEs can also benefit from reaching new markets and we want to encourage them to do so,” says Councillor Colin Davie, Executive Member for Economic Development at Lincolnshire County Council.
“Exporting allows smaller businesses to increase profitability, access new markets and realise their potential.”
The workshops will be running throughout June and July.
