We have been selected as one of 16 companies to go to Paris, and one of 24 companies to go to Madrid this week to support European trade missions. The initiative, led by the Mayor’s International Business Programme and London & Partners, helps companies from London’s Tech, Life Sciences and Urban sectors, to explore and expand overseas.
This exclusive new programme, partly funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), provides bespoke mentoring schemes, expert advice and workshops, and targeted trade missions to all participating companies.
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, is visiting Paris and Brussels to make the case that, despite Brexit, London remains open to business, investment, talent and ideas. Sadiq is visiting these key European capitals in a bid to strengthen economic, business and cultural ties between London and its European neighbours.
We’re delighted to be part of this drive for British business engaging in overseas partnerships. Following our recent participation at the UK-France Data Summit 2017 in London, we’re keen to engage directly with French businesses to help them tackle fraud, data privacy and age verification challenges. A consistent approach across borders will be essential to help address these issues.
Deputy Mayor for Business, Rajesh Agrawal, said: “I am delighted that Yoti is joining me in Paris as we showcase some of the most innovative and entrepreneurial businesses London has to offer. Our great city has a long and proud history of trading and doing business with our friends overseas and that will never change. The Mayor and I look forward to working with Yoti to build new relationships, attract investment and show the entire continent that London is Open and the best city in the world to do business with.”
