HP is looking to celebrate small businesses who have taken the plunge and started exporting in 2015 with the HP Go Global Awards.
To get involved all you need to do is pen 500 words on the market entry strategy that you have undertaken to enter the export market. The entries will be whittled down to a 6 strong shortlist.
As they say on the website: “The HP Go Global Awards shine a light on some of the country’s most dynamic, innovative and expanding SMBs, recognising the achievements of those that have successfully entered the international export market and encouraging those looking to break into new territories.
The awards echo Go Global’s original principles – that small business owners should not shy away from international trade opportunities because of perceived language, currency, cultural and business barriers.”
And the prizes are pretty good:
In addition to a place on a trade mission to China, the two winners will receive:
– A selection of HP’s top of the range business products chosen to meet the winners’ specific business needs
12 months complimentary membership to techUK
– Access to a Business in the Community arc one day training workshop, such as “The Six Box Strategy”, “Recruiting and Developing a Team” and “Develop a Marketing and Communications Strategy”
– 4 mentoring sessions on commercial banking to help grow your business, with Richard Bearman, UK Director of Small Business, HSBC
