Neciah, CEO at FluoretiQ, who is building business partnerships to expand, supported by his specialist Nat.

Break into international business markets and adjacent sectors to grow and scale with help from our connections, expertise and targeted global programmes.  

Any innovative business that is ambitious to progress on its growth journey towards scale must find new markets. Alongside exploiting innovation effectively and attracting investment, entering new markets is one of the key areas that our specialist-led bespoke support may focus on with you.

At the outset of an engagement, our specialists can help you do the groundwork to identify new market opportunities and the best geographic markets for your innovative goods or services and consider important factors such as your competitive advantage. These steps are necessary before launching any global business expansion.

Business networks, programmes, brokerage events and partnerships tool

We offer innovation-driven businesses several ways to build their knowledge of and presence in key overseas markets, including through developing R&D and innovation collaborations and partnerships and helping to find potential end users or customers.

The world’s largest business network

Our specialists provide access to comprehensive and tailored advice covering both the UK and international markets. They build on a heritage of collaboration with the Enterprise Europe Network, the most extensive association of innovation and growth support organisations around the world. This advice ranges from sourcing and establishing connections with new collaborators and potential partners, to information on local regulations.

Innovation and business growth programmes

Specially designed initiatives, supported by our specialists, help you to learn about specific international markets in person and build business relationships there, for example, the Global Business Innovation Programme and Global Incubator Programme. We can also help you access international funding opportunities such as Horizon Europe and Eureka Eurostars as well as other international programmes run by Innovate UK.

Business events

Our focused brokerage events can also help you to find new international business opportunities and provide the essential information you need on markets and sectors. 

Live global partnering opportunities

Finally, our partnerships tool and connections to overseas specialist advisers allow you to forge business partnerships that cross borders and take your business to new levels of growth. Please note that we are unable to process expressions of interest at the moment, until our partnership status with the Enterprise Europe Network has been confirmed for 2022 and beyond.

Grow your business with access to new markets

In order to accelerate your growth, you may need to identify new market opportunities for your goods and services. Breaking into new markets requires market strategy, knowledge and connections for long-term success. Our specialists can help you to understand potential markets, analyse the opportunity and identify your competitive advantage. 

Choosing the best market for your innovation requires market segmentation. If your business sells products, think about the value, accessibility and growth potential of this product for your customers.

As you grow, you may outsize your home market and need to look further afield for new opportunities. Our global programmes, brokerage events and advisors can provide you with the information, advice and connections needed for global business expansion.
