Through our membership of Enterprise Europe Network, Kingston University can offer alumni in SMEs free assistance to help grow their international business.
During the last few months, we've worked with clients in areas ranging from education software to biomass energy to aerospace. We've taken clients to international business-to-business matchmaking events in water treatment (AquaMatch, Amsterdam) and cleantech (Pollutec, Paris). We've introduced a client to microcapsulation specialists across Europe and helped another looking for a cycle distributor in North America. We've pointed clients towards export training courses and specialist advisers on intellectual property.
Coming up we're involved in a series of business-to-business meetings being held at Ecobuild on Wednesday 5 March from 10.30am to 6.00pm. Ecobuild is the world's largest event for sustainable design, construction, energy and the built environment.
The 2013 event attracted 191 participants from 21 countries, resulting in 467 face-to-face meetings. It's a great way to meet potential business partners.
Join our free matchmaking session on Wednesday 5 March. This is a quick and easy way to meet other organisations who are looking for potential co-operation partners and, because you can book and agree your meeting schedule in advance, it's a highly efficient use of your time. Find out more information on our events and the services we provide.
