Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD has announced that a new Potential Exporters Division in Enterprise Ireland has gone live. This division will help identify more exporters, provide supports for 1800 companies in 2012, target 250 of these for intensive work on export initiatives and achieve an increase of 60 percent in the number of companies which will receive the Going Global grant in 2012.

A “Get Export Ready” programme of supports has also been established by Enterprise Ireland which will aim specifically at pre-export and early stage exporting companies. It includes a range of practical measures for early exporters including: workshops, seminars and training; mentoring and advocate support; access to market information; a new website with “how to” guides, links to relevant information, self-assessment tools and templates; a new helpdesk; access to advice from successful exporting companies; and access to a range of Enterprise Ireland financial supports.
