Glasgow digital education specialist scoops export prize

Glasgow-based Klik2Learn Ltd – a digital content company specialising in education – has further boosted its export ambitions after clinching a high-profile competition funded by UK Trade & Investment.

The business – which has developed a new digital approach to improving spoken English along with blended learning content for the digital native generation – was among ten finalists vying for the top prize in Open to Export’s Action Plan Competition.

The five-strong company, which presented its Export Action Plan along with fellow finalists to a panel of judges at the International Festival for Business 2016, has been awarded £3k funding and additional benefits.

Ann Attridge, director of Klik2Learn Ltd, which employs 5 staff, said:

“I’m bowled over – especially as it was a last minute decision to enter the competition. This accolade will undoubtedly enhance our reputation and the funding will be instrumental in furthering our international trade goals in countries including India, France and the Balkans. The Export Action Plan has been invaluable for challenging us and keeping us focused as we map out the next stage of our journey.”

Open to Export has been set up by the government as a digital solution to boost the UK’s SME exports. The Export Action Plan is the latest addition to its online offering, which is dedicated to helping businesses prepare to sell overseas by giving them free access to online information, support and advice.

Using the tool allows businesses to take ownership of their export strategies, making decisions along each step of their international trade journey – from selecting a market to delivering products or services to new customers.
