If you want to grow, you need to think globally. Now you can do it online with WebPort Global.
If you export products, especially food or drink products, to the UK, you will be keenly aware of the threat Brexit poses.
Not to put too fine a point on it, but you should be looking for new markets.
WebPort Global is an online platform designed to connect SMEs around the world. It connects businesses with other firms in over 60 countries worldwide.
“Our job is to build leads for Irish businesses that want to find customers in large, new markets, not just the UK,” says Maureen Pace (left), president of WebPort Global.
“Small and medium Irish businesses may have thought about the US market and thought they didn’t have the time and money to research the market, find new customers and start exporting. WebPort Global makes all this possible for SMEs,” says Pace.
One business owner who is enjoying success using WebPort Global is Jason Coyle, CEO of award winning food brand Mr. Crumb (see video above).
The portal’s concierge service helped Coyle connect with influential retail buyers in the US.
“The concierge service helped me connect with a North American grocery industry expert which led to a series of face-to-face and telephone meetings with US buyers,” says Coyle.
“Another key part of WebPort Global’s service is our Global Trade Export Network,” says Pace.
“Business owners can see trade reports and case studies relating to their activities. They can also take part in discussion forums and profile their offering to the other users of the platform.”
