High Growth Market Accelerator

New York City, US

If you are currently operating in or considering high growth markets such as the US, Latin America, Middle East and Asia (China, India & SE Asia) our High Growth Market programme of intensive strategic support can help. 

How we can help

If a product or service is generally competitive in European economies, it is also likely to sell well in markets across the globe. If your business proposition is unique, high value and delivers excellence then you have every chance of trading successfully in high growth markets.

Delivered by our team of commercially minded Market Specialists, the service is aimed at experienced exporters who have the potential to compete in fast-growing markets but have not yet entered them. If you can demonstrate a demand for your products/services in the supported markets then your business can benefit from intensive consultancy services free of charge (eligibility applies).

We can help with:

  • Market entry strategy development   
  • Competitive analysis 
  • Assessing and securing new business
