NSW GOING GLOBAL EXPORT PROGRAM – 15 February 2023
This virtual information session with the experts was to promote, explain and discuss Investment NSW’s Going Global Export Program, designed for NSW cybersecurity SMEs to expand to the United Kingdom.
Applications were open for eligible cyber businesses to apply for free support to gain business in the UK, including potential partner search and introductions, plus participation at London Tech Week from 12-16 June 2023.
Dedicated staff from Investment NSW, based in NSW and the UK, guide a cohort of NSW cyber businesses through the 14-week Going Global program, starting in April 2023. You can hear from previous Tech program participants in this 2-min video.
As a global leader in cybersecurity, the UK offers the largest market in Europe, with the added benefit of an exceptional pipeline of talent and investment opportunities. In 2020, the sector was worth £8.9 billion (A$15.57 billion).
This session was for anyone thinking about expanding to the UK, or who is already working with this region and was interested to find out more about this Program from the panel:

Emma Stevens: NSW Trade & Investment Director – London
Michael Warnock: Chief Commercial Officer – Daltrey Pty Ltd
