Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce launch Business Without Borders video series

Posted: 29th November 2017

Today, we are delighted to launch our new video series – Business Without Borders.

This series will give businesses an overview of the opportunities available for trading and expanding overseas as well as providing useful hints and tops on how to grow your business internationally.

The first episode, filmed in November, features Timothy Byrne, Managing Director of AbacusBio  and John Peebles, CEO of Administrate, who each share their unique experiences on what it’s like to manage an international business. As well as giving useful pieces of advice to those looking to take their business overseas, we learn of some of the challenges which face growing international businesses.

Alexia Haramis, Head of International at the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce said:

“It is very important for us as a Chamber to inform and support members who are planning to grow their business overseas. Alongside our calendar of exclusive events and training courses, the Business Without Borders series will help to break down the barriers associated with internationalisation and will hopefully answer some common questions around expanding into new markets.

Working with our partners, the Scottish Chambers of Commerce, Scottish Development International and the Scottish Government, we want to make internationalisation an easy and exciting opportunity for all Scottish businesses.”
