"Ready2Go. Supporting SMEs Internationalisation" is a pilot project financed by the European Commission (EC) and the European Agency for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (EASME).
Started in October 2016, Ready2Go was aimed at supporting 80 European SMEs to internationalise and become active in five extra-EU Country markets (Cameroon, Canada, Chile, India, USA) through the design and delivery of tailored services.
As pilot project, Ready2Go tested a sustainable model of internationalisation support services with European companies:
Identification of 80 dynamic and healthy SMEs with a potential to compete in international markets but with a limited international experience
Internationalisation check-up to understand SMEs' needs and assess their internationalisation readiness
Individual training and coaching to support SMEs in elaborating their Internationalisation Business Plan (IBP)
Collective training focused on doing business in the target extra-EU markets (Cameroon, Canada, Chile, India, USA)
Tailored matchmaking with selected counterparts in the Target Markets through virtual and on-site B2B meetings during brokerage events
