Heathrow Airport: World of Opportunity SME Grants Programme
12 Jul 2017
Heathrow has announced the launch our World of Opportunity SME Grants Programme, in partnership with the Department of International Trade’s, Exporting is GREAT campaign.
As the UK's hub and biggest port by value, Heathrow aims to support SMEs across the UK. Last year Heathrow committed to establish a grants programme which offered £2,000 to growing businesses to help them begin exporting or reach new markets. We are therefore delighted to deliver on this pledge and open the applications process for 20 UK SMEs to each win a grant of £2,000 to help fund a trade mission, trade show or market research. Through partnership with the Exporting is GREAT campaign we can help prepare each successful applicant for international trade; as well as giving them exclusive lounge access as they depart Heathrow from programme supporter Plaza Premium lounges.
With your wealth of experience from supporting and identifying quality SMEs, would you consider sharing details of the Programme amongst your members and signposting them to the application page tomorrow after 9am when our press release goes live? You are welcome to suggest that they apply with a specific trade mission or trade show in mind. Application closes on Friday July 14th and all criteria, terms and conditions are on the webpage here: www.heathrow.com/worldofopportunity
