The Grow Beyond Programme is designed for Invest NI client businesses trading in manufacturing and tradeable services that have the motivation to develop business outside Northern Ireland, into the Republic of Ireland (RoI) or Great Britain (GB), perhaps for the first time.

The programme will help you to consider:

  • The decisions and steps you need to take to develop business in RoI or GB
  • The potential of the market for your product/service and relevant market segments for targeting prospective routes to market
  • The internal structures and systems you need to put in place to support your business development efforts

The programme comprises:

  • Three practical skills workshops looking at researching the market, considerations for market development and selecting distribution channels and partners
  • Three days of 1:1 mentoring support to help apply the training to your own business circumstances and develop a Trade Action plan
  • Presentation of your Trade Action plan to your fellow participants and Invest Northern Ireland

By participating you will get:

  • A short, practical Trade Action plan of your next steps for submission to Invest NI for consideration of support to put it into action
  • Access to a range of follow up support including financial assistance to visit the market

Grow Beyond is open to Invest NI client businesses of our Regional Business Group who have been trading for at least one year and have a base of sales in Northern Ireland, have a strong interest in developing sales outside Northern Ireland and are willing to invest the necessary time and budget to develop business in their chosen market over the ensuing 12 months.
