+Venture Builder – How To Grow Through Innovation & Internationalisation

+Venture Builder is a brand new programme delivered by the Tees Valley Business Hub (TVBH) with the SME Centre of Excellence on behalf of Grow Tees Valley. Accessing new or untested markets can be daunting, therefore this programme is designed to equip Tees Valley businesses with the skills, knowledge and confidence to grow internationally.

The programme is 100% funded for each business taking part, with wrap around support through the Tees Valley Business Hub. Participants will gain insight into how to access international markets, learn about our innovation toolset and master the skillset and techniques to grow their business in new markets. Our world-class team of experts will support them through activities that holistically and ethically support the key components of their business: the idea, the product, the market, the team, the money, and how these fit into the lifecycle of SMEs wishing to scale and grow.
