NI Chamber has been awarded the ‘Most Innovative Project’ award for its Learn Grow Excel business support initiative at the Chambers Ireland Awards held yesterday (10 April 2019) in the Crowne Plaza Santry in Dublin.
The awards recognise best practice and showcase the diverse activity taking place across the island of Ireland led by the Chambers network.
Launched in November 2016, Learn Grow Excel is a suite of business support initiatives intended to help ambitious companies reach their growth potential. The initiative was developed in response to the Department for the Economy’s ‘Export Matters’ strategy, which sets out ambitious targets for growth in international markets, and has been designed to support growing companies at every stage of development and to encourage more export activity in Northern Ireland.
Businesses who take part in the initiative are given the opportunity to meet buyers, learn from those who have achieved export success, develop growth potential, secure export orders, expand networks, find out about scaling-up and take part in near market trade visits.
Learn Grow Excel is supported by NI Chamber’s SME partner, Power NI; Bank of Ireland UK; Danske Bank; First Trust Bank; HSBC; Ulster Bank and Ulster Carpets.
