Know You’re Limitless: The Global Scale-up Programme

Greater Manchester, even greater possibilities

With the right support and funding, the world has never been more accessible for Greater Manchester’s businesses. From the expansion of direct routes at Manchester Airport to the ongoing inward investment from key international growth markets, the opportunity to go global is at an all-time high.

Businesses that export can:
- Be more productive than non-exporters
- Increase the commercial lifespan of products and services
- Produce economies of scale not possible domestically
- Achieve stronger financial performance
