When and why did the business decide to export?
The business has always had the overseas market as its main target. Having an English language focus at this stage, the home market was always going to be of lesser significance to us. We needed to establish ourselves here first however and prove the value of the product before launching internationally. The main challenge we’ve had is where to start! Over the last two year we’ve refined the product, made several visits to India, attended many training events, commissioned reports and now feel we’re ready to go.
What is the company’s export vision?
Since we’re creating web -based digital learning and apps, we’re not confined to geographic locations. We’d like to establish a reputation for creativity and innovation – doing things a bit differently from the mainstream publishers. We want to create learning that works for today’s digital natives but we do have a vision for reaching those in emerging markets who are currently disavantaged through location or economic status. Access to education can transform lives and we’d like to demonstrate that digital learning has a special role to play.
How did you find out about Open to Export?
Through UKTI alerts.
How useful did you find the Export Action Plan?
It was a thorough and thought-provoking exercise and I found the interactive elements very useful. It’s structured in such a way that you have no choice but to ask yourself some searching questions!
How has/will the plan help accelerate your export goals
We have a very useful working document – like business plan for export that we can re-visit and revise as we go forward. It’s a useful document to share with the team so that everyone knows what we’re aiming for.
