UKTI’s Global Entrepreneur Programme (GEP) specifically focuses on helping entrepreneurs scale their business globally using UK headquarters as a springboard. Since the inception of the programme in 2004 it has had over 350 global successes (i.e. entrepreneurs and companies expanding and relocating in the UK) and more than 250 businesses have landed in the UK in the last 4 years.
Who is GEP for?
The GEP seeks to enable Entrepreneurs and early stage technology companies from a very broad range of technologies such as e-health, financial tech, software, nanotechnology, cyber-security, healthcare, digital media, wireless, advanced engineering and renewable from all over the world to globalise their businesses from a UK hub.
Our GEP companies have also raised over £1bn of equity investment since 2004 and created over 2000 high value jobs.
How can the GEP help?
It offers a bespoke service that provides the insight, trusted networks and experience of our internationally successful entrepreneurs to help companies expand into global markets.
Take a look at the video from the 2012 edition of the GEP. See real-life experiences from companies which attended the Global Entrepreneur Programme London 2012.
