What to expect at the UKTI export jam


Published on

Whether you are already exporting, looking to export, or haven’t yet considered internationalising your business, we need your help to design the future of export support.

Your challenge: help us transform the current export support landscape so that we can achieve our ambition of making Britain the most proactive export nation in the world.

To kick this off this work, UK Trade and Investment's Ideas Lab are hosting Export Jams on 28th July at locations up and down the country – but they won’t work without you. You’ll have the chance to network with businesses facing challenges just like yours, to share insights and experiences, and to collaborate with others to create prototypes of the products and services you need in the future.
