Our Programmes with the European Regional Development Fund

South East Gateway to Trade



The programme supports Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) across the South East of England to mitigate any new barriers or challenges they experience in trading internationally.

Eligible businesses with exporting ambitions receive intensive assistance through 1-2-1 advice and a programme of activities to develop their export strategy and help them to grow their business internationally. SMEs benefit from an improvement in their capacity and capability to export to new markets, stimulating economic growth across the LEP areas, increasing GVA and productivity, whilst safeguarding and creating jobs.

The project is funded by European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
