Our Successes

Our cohorts have expanded into new territories and markets, created jobs, and strengthened their management talent and finances.

“The community of entrepreneurs that the programme has built has been fantastic in sharing knowledge with us.”  Priya Lakhani, Century Tech (Winner of Award for Highest Growth)

2017 was a stellar year for the cohort members of the Mayor’s International Business Programme*:

  • More than eight out of ten (86%) of the cohort companies created new jobs in 2017
  • More than half of them signed new deals (54%) and entered new markets (56%)
  • One in four (25%) opened new offices
  • And over half again (56%) secured further funding in 2017


'The programme has helped on many levels. We have been on trade missions, expanded our contacts, gained valuable advice and had a sense of confidence - we feel a part of a movement and a support network. The mayoral support is a badge of honour, combined with the practical help of the excellent L&P team makes it work so well.'Simon Binns, Sthaler
