Internationalisation Fund: Co-Investment Funding for SMEs
6th July 2021 10:00am

Discover how to access co-investment funding from the Department for International Trade for SMEs who want to grow into new overseas markets

The Department for International Trade and European Regional Development Fund have launched a new Internationalisation Fund for eligible SMEs based in England.

What is the Internationalisation Fund?

Launched in December 2020, the Internationalisation Fund provides match-funded grants between £1,000 and £9,000 to use for future business activities (subject to eligibility and availability) aimed at helping SMEs grow in new international markets.

To secure a grant, you will need to fund a proportion of your costs yourself. This varies according to where your business is based and will be either 40% or 50% of the total cost.

SMEs based in England now have the opportunity to apply for the next round of funds, which is available until the end of September 2021 and can be used to support eligible expenditure areas.

Full details about eligible costs and co-funding will be explained at the event.
