Free three hour workshops in London provide advice to tech organisations seeking to expand internationally.

techUK, in association with GTM Global, will be running two free three-hour mentoring workshops, as it looks to widen its support to mid-sized technology focused businesses.

The workshops, which will take place in London on 18 and 19 May, will provide advice and guidance to tech organisations seeking to expand internationally and looking for critical advice and guidance on how to go to market globally.

The workshops are part of techUK’s aim to connect with and support the technology-based firms within the 30,000 high-growth, entrepreneurial and ambitious mid-market businesses. This sector accounts for only 1.5% of all UK companies but one-third (£1.2 trillion) of all UK turnover and a recent report shows commensurate tech company growth up 23% in value since 2014.

‘There are growing number of successful UK tech businesses who are looking at exactly how to expand globally in a post-Brexit world’, says Simon Spier Head of International Trade at techUK. “The aim of these workshops is to create an ongoing dialogue with business owners to provide guidance and understanding for effective export strategies and implementation. Based on the UK’s continued growth as one of the most successful technology hubs, techUK wants to help to create the next £1 billion company’

A team of investors, technology providers, in-country trade specialists, legal, accounting and marketing experts from Silicon Valley Bank, The Department of International Trade, Moore Stephens, Newable, Hickey & Associates and Harvard Communications will provide expert advice and guidance, plus tailored one-to-one mentoring on a raft of Go to Market strategy issues.

Places at these GTM Global workshops are designed for business owners with high-growth aspirations with companies turning over a minimum of £1 million per annum and, who are actively seeking international market expansion within an immediate three to six-month period.
