InterTradeIreland needs you!

Posted by Jim on February 25, 2016  /   Posted in Blog

In 2016, InterTradeIreland is committed to making our sales supports as widely known to businesses as possible and this is where we need your help.

We are now looking for further quality applications for our Acumen and Elevate sales programmes from eligible companies that you may know in your local area or have worked with previously.

Elevate as you are aware, assists micro-businesses in particular, to develop a winning sales plan and to fast track cross-border exporting and success.

Acumen assists small businesses who already have a satisfactory trading background in their home market, to source and fund the right people to help them increase their cross-border export sales North or South, to help them improve their knowledge of the market and to identify new business opportunities.

But what’s in it for me? (I hear you say!)

Companies participating on both our Elevate and Acumen programmes are able to avail of consultancy support from individuals and businesses just like yours. Under Acumen, this falls under the part time sales support and market research option .

Whilst we can’t promise that this will mean additional business specifically for you, it will generate a pipeline of companies looking to avail of the type of services provided by your business.

How you can help

Please download our sales support brochure here and email/handout to your contacts. We have also added some text below which you may find useful.

Many thanks for your support.
