Accelerated entry into the US market
ExportExchange are running an innovation and technology US Trade Accelerator Mission to Boston with a programme of activities, meetings and events for delegate businesses from the Leeds City Region.
The visit, hosted by the British Consulate in Boston, British American Business Council and local private sector partners, will provide a comprehensive market insight and preparation for business-ready firms to break into the lucrative US market.
Peer to peer insights & advice
The programme is being tailored with the input and management of Yorkshire business people who know the market, the sectors and who have connections in Boston.
Delegate firms who can evidence that they are market-ready, scalable and who operate in the areas of technology and innovation may be eligible for support for the mission from the region’s Exporting for Growth ERDF funding programme.
This trade accelerator mission will be tailored to provide relevant meetings and events for the delegates, with local pre-mission prep sessions as well as mentoring in Boston as part of the unique programme.
After a week immersed in the vibrant Boston and New England region, meeting contacts in every aspect of business, including advisers and potential business partners and customers, delegate businesses will have a 360 degree perspective on their US opportunity. The mission will deliver in-depth market research and validation of their US business plans from a ‘boots on the ground’ perspective.
