DCSD Council launch Cross Border Sales Growth Programme

The Derry City and Strabane District Council (DCSDC) have today launched their Cross Border Sales Growth Programme.

As a consequence of Brexit, there has been a significant uplift in trade between NI and the Republic of Ireland over the last 3 months, as NI businesses seek both new customers and new suppliers there.

Deliverered as part of their Business Innovation and Growth Programme, this initiative challenges business owners to begin selling into new markets.

What’s Involved?

  • 3 2-hour workshops – These workshops are assessing your readiness to do business in the ROI market, explain what you need to know about Brexit and preparing to meet with potential customers in the Republic of Ireland
  • Tailored 1-1 mentoring – To support efforts in exploring new business opportunities in ROI, participants will be entitled to 2 days one-to-one mentoring support.

Who’s eligible?

To be considered for a place, your Business must:

  • Be based in the DCSDC District Council area;
  • Employ less than 50 people;
  • Have a genuine commitment to exploring new business opportunities in the Republic of Ireland.
