Are you based in the North East?
Bolst Global is also an approved supplier of the Virtual Export Manager (VEM) scheme.
This is a scheme specific to this region whereby North Eastern companies in the catchment area are able to gain financial support to enlist the expertise of individuals or companies who can act as a temporary export managers. This allows companies to put in place an international strategy and/or begin the internationalisation process with some dedicated skilled export resource (with lack of international experience or internal resource the main reasons why so many companies don’t start exploring or capitalising on overseas opportunities). This funding can also be used for a smaller international project. Alternatively it can comprise of an ongoing export development work with match funding up to the value of £2000 on offer, allowing a longer time frame for brands to get to grips with kick starting or developing further their exports.
If your business is registered in the North East and you would like to see how Bolst Global could help you to get your international business either up and running or further developed then please contact us here for more details.
We have been working with Dr Wills since January 2018 via this programme. So far we have investigated the sauces and condiments category and secured market entry into the following markets: United Arab Emirates, Spain, Kuwait and France with several other markets pending.
“It’s great having Bolst Global on board at Dr Will’s. We are a small team and at our stage don’t have the resources or expertise to focus on export in-house. Knowing Bolst have the export side of the business covered is a great relief for us and we’re already seeing results after just a few months. They are organised and efficient and keep us updated regularly with their progress. Looking forward to seeing our export business grow over the next few months!”
