Win a £2,000 grant to fund a trade mission for your business

Are you a SME business in the East of England? Are you interested in winning a £2,000 SME grant to fund a trade mission of your choice?

Each year, Heathrow, in partnership with the Department for International Trade and Plaza Premium, awards 20 grants to UK Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) as part of the World of Opportunity Programme. The grants, of £2,000, can be used to fund trade missions, research global markets, and help grow UK SME exports.

Last years winners from the East of England included Cambridge-based crisp brand Savoursmiths, Suffolk-based heating equipment supplier LMK Thermosafe and Hertfordshire-based business MamaBabyLiss, who used their grant to showcase their products and services at the “Best of British” Trade Show in Shanghai.
