The Global Growth Project is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and delivered by Newable with the Department for International Trade (DIT) London Region. Global Growth aims to enhance the competitiveness of London SMEs in international markets and will achieve this goal by providing London-based SMEs with the expertise and support needed to break into high growth and emerging markets.
The Project targets London priority sectors Technology, Digital, Creative, Medical Technology and Smart Cities and also high growth and/or innovative London companies from any sector.
As a part of the Global Growth Project, the Global Growth London 1-2-1 Support Programme offers London-based SMEs the possibility to receive bespoke advice and support from an International Trade Adviser (ITA), who can act as independent mentors for their businesses and help them overcome the barriers that may prevent them from exporting or growing internationally
