Grow Beyond

Grow Beyond is an early stage exporter programme designed to help Invest Northern Ireland customers within manufacturing and tradeable services. It enables businesses to take a step back from the daily sales drive to review and improve processes in order to develop export sales opportunities in the Republic of Ireland (ROI) and Great Britain (GB).

The Programme covers how to successfully target and research markets, advice on developing export markets, identifying and managing distribution channels and partners, and how to develop a robust Trade Action Plan.

Grow Beyond is designed for Invest NI customers who:

  • Have two years trading experience
  • Employ a minimum of three individuals
  • Have a turnover of £250k to £2m
  • Currently export less than 30% of turnover
  • Do not currently trade beyond ROI and GB
