DIT’s GLOBAL ENTREPRENEURS PROGRAMME
The UK Government’s Department for International Trade has a Global Entrepreneur Programme to attract entrepreneurial, innovation-rich business with high-growth potential from all over the world. We help them set up their strategic HQ in the UK and then provide focussed mentoring to assist their growth. Our dynamic team of entrepreneurs has helped more than 350 entrepreneurs and early-stage technology companies to establish in the UK, with more than 200 of these landing since 2010. We have achieved this by:
- Harnessing the insight and networks of our own team of internationally successful entrepreneurs
- Leveraging these networks to help accelerate our client businesses realise the potential of their innovative ideas
- Identifying world class IP and enabling client companies to access industry talent and expertise
- Raising investment capital with over US$550 million raised so far
On September 27th, 17:30, Campus Madrid hosts the presentation of the Global Entrepreneurship Program with Richard Leaver. Based in Cambridge, Richard has extensive experience building and investing in market-led technology businesses from start-up to commercial success.
