We’re helping high-growth UK businesses access and increase their exposure to international markets through our Global Connect Programme.
San Francisco or ‘Silicon Valley’ is one of the most established entrepreneurial ecosystems in the world and we’ve worked with business growth experts to create a virtual programme that helps ambitious UK businesses learn how to scale, expand or raise funding in the US.
The programme is delivered by our US partner, Panache Ventures.
