This year, Virgin Media Business VOOM is rewarding entrepreneurs who are excelling in all different areas, including those flying the flag for Great Britain overseas.
The GREAT Award is for businesses that are already exporting to different countries and VOOM has teamed up with UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) to present this award. One lucky business will get the chance to visit Downing Street for a one-to-one mentoring session with one of the Prime Minister’s business ambassadors and a package of bespoke export services.
According to research by UKTI, a business is 11 per cent more likely to survive if it does business overseas and companies that do export their goods become 34 per cent more productive in the first year alone.
One business that is already setting a great example in exporting is Mystery Vibe, the pleasure toy company that now exports its goods to 49 countries.
