We are delighted to announce that Collinson is an official partner of the Mayor’s International Business Programme, which helps fast-growing technology, life sciences, urban and creative companies grow from a brilliant idea into the next global leader.
The programme provides a bespoke mentoring scheme, delivered by leading entrepreneurs and business leaders; expert advice and workshops; targeted trade missions; and access to live leads and opportunities.
Innovation has always sat at the heart of Collinson, which has a long and proud history of utilising best-in class partners to further enhance the products and solutions we offer to our clients.
As a partner, Collinson will be working alongside leading entrepreneurs and business leaders to consult some of London’s most exciting start-up companies and make its global network and unique skillset available to them to help them expand overseas. While this is a London-led initiative, the partnership will enable Collinson to get closer to global cutting edge start-ups, beyond travel technology, as well as provide opportunities to participate and host regional trade missions and events.
As part of the Mayor’s International Business Programme, the inaugural London Business Awards recently took place at The Brewery. The awards celebrate the success and innovation across London’s business community.
Christopher Evans, Joint CEO at Collinson, said: “I had the privilege of attending the first London Business Awards, celebrating the outstanding achievements and global growth of London’s business society. As a partner of the Mayor’s International Business Programme, Collinson looks forward to establishing close relationships with some strong start-ups recognised at the awards and helping them expand internationally.”
