GreatBritishStore.com aims to make exporting easier and more profitable for SMEs in the UK.
Supported by DIT and championed by Paul Noon OBE, GreatBritishStore.com gives British businesses the support and backing they need to showcase and sell their products and services on a global stage.
GreatBritishStore.com began life on a DIT export trade mission, where founders Nick Lewis and Mark Lesniak came up with the idea of a central, visible reference of British products and services that was actively promoted by DIT and British Consulates.
Having many years of experience in exporting consumer goods, and developing contacts at Consulates around the world, Nick realised that thousands of British businesses lacked the right contacts, support or finance to expand into additional markets. Many companies find it prohibitively expensive and time consuming to expand into overseas markets, and there are thousands of quality British designs, products and services with no presence on the global stage. Nick and Mark wanted to find a way to make the process as simple and cost-effective as possible for SMEs.
Mark was able to bring his years of digital marketing experience to getting vendors online; an eCommerce enabled platform, which would showcase British products and services. Nick was able to bring his years of export experience to finding buyers at the other end; supported by DIT, GreatBritishStore.com will be promoted in 106 Consulates around the world.
DIT have supported GreatBritishStore.com from the beginning, sharing their vision to make exporting easier and more accessible to British businesses.
