Amazon Small Business Accelerator exporting advice bootcamp
Amazon Small Business Accelerator exporting advice boot camp takes place on the 26th and 27th of January. Titled Selling Globally with Amazon, the support package for UK small businesses and startups founded by Amazon and Enterprise Nation is providing free education to small businesses on how to sell their products globally on Amazon’s stores.
Following the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement, the two-day Amazon Small Business Accelerator exporting advice boot camp provides an opportunity for entrepreneurs to gain clarity on how to sell into the EU with Amazon, as well as guidance on selling to the USA and Australia. The event will include presentations from trade experts on how to navigate the current exporting challenges for SMEs, details of how to use marketing and brand tools on Amazon, and a chance to meet a successful small business selling partner reaching customers around the world with Amazon.
Attendees will be offered six hours of free training and support on how to sell successfully from a range of experts. They will also be connected to a group of like-minded entrepreneurs and receive ongoing access to a network of trainers and advisers from Enterprise Nation to assist them throughout their business journey.
There are limited numbers of tickets for the Amazon Small Business Accelerator exporting advice bootcamp which you can snag here.
“Amazon is proud to be working with Enterprise Nation to deliver free education to business owners and entrepreneurs in helping them navigate the opportunities afforded by going global online. Through this bootcamp small businesses will be equipped with the tools, knowledge and support they need to address the challenges of today, by establishing a successful online operation and reaching customers around the world.”
– Simon Donegan, Head of Seller Services, Amazon
“Exporting and going global is clearly a huge topic for small businesses and as they tackle new transition-related responsibilities for the first time, free bootcamps like these are vital to ensure we can help guide firms through these challenges. Despite everything, the UK’s startup appetite has not been dimmed and remains as strong, if not stronger, than ever. What is clear however, is that the demand for early-stage support and guidance on everything from what to include in a business plan to how to export to the US and of course, the EU, has exploded. These targeted bootcamps will help to support the UK’s enterprise community through this period and beyond.”
– Emma Jones CBE, Enterprise Nation
“The 5.9 million small businesses in the UK are the backbone of our economy. Those that export are typically more productive, more profitable and jobs with them are more secure. Yet many who could export do not do so because they lack the market knowledge and exporting expertise. So I welcome Amazon’s Small Business Accelerator online bootcamp and the support it will provide to businesses to start trading overseas. It’s a fantastic initiative and could make all the difference to firms’ survival and growth. We are, once again, an independent trading nation and, as my department negotiates trade deals around the world, it’s essential that entrepreneurs are able to take advantage of them. Amazon’s bootcamp will help them do exactly that.”
– Graham Stuart MP, Minister for Exports, Department for International Trade
