Support for construction SMEs overseas trading
Construction SMEs overseas trading
Lead Creators launch an Accelerated International Market Entry Programme (AIMEP) to work alongside government white paper aimed at encouraging UK businesses to trade internationally.
While the Government's proposals tackle the financial concerns involved with exporting, such as state-guaranteed loans to back exporters and an extension of the Export Credit Guarantee scheme for those sending goods outside the OECD and EU, Lead Creators focuses on reducing the risks to SMEs in the construction industry when entering new international markets.
It is widely acknowledged that the key to sustained and balanced growth for UK businesses is proactive innovation via new international market diversification.
Traditionally there have been significant perceived risks for smaller construction companies when penetrating new international markets.
By partnering with Lead Creators via AIMEP, SMEs with limited internal resource and budgets can achieve ambitions for international growth quicker and more cost effectively.
Lead Creators can even provide guidance on funding or grants that are available to support SMEs with new market development in particular sectors.
With market expertise in Europe, Middle East, Central and South America and Asia, Lead Creators' AIMEP assists smaller UK construction companies to export to these territories, as well as international companies wanting to penetrate the UK market.
