    Extend your Global Reach
    As a rule, companies applying for Extend Your Global Reach will be experienced exporters with an annual turnover of at least £1 million and financial resources to invest in market development. Where companies do not meet these criteria, but they offer a compelling and innovative product or service with potential to succeed in the target market, their application would be considered on merit.
