We are working with strategic partners across the globe to hold familiarisation events in local markets. This is an opportunity for us to show you why Wales is the perfect destination to scale your business. Interested in hosting a familiarisation event? Get in touch!
Following our familiarisation events, we will be hosting trade missions to Wales so that eligible businesses can see all that Wales has to offer and better understand the Welsh tech ecosystem.
All eligible businesses will then be enrolled onto the programme, which includes a 12-week intensive programme of support alongside free workspace at Tramshed Tech, Innovation Station Newport for up to 6 months. During this time, founders will gain access to a range of one-to-one and one-to-few support sessions, introductions to partners and networking opportunities.
