The Awards

The HP Go Global Awards shine a light on some of the country’s most dynamic, innovative and expanding SMBs, recognising the achievements of those that have successfully entered the international export market and encouraging those looking to break into new territories.

The awards echo Go Global’s original principles – that small business owners should not shy away from international trade opportunities because of perceived language, currency, cultural and business barriers.

The total number of HP Go Global Award entrants will be whittled down to a six strong shortlist, with all six offered a complimentary place on Enterprise Nation’s upcoming 2015 trade mission to China, gaining access to one of the world’s biggest markets, as well as invaluable training and consultancy.

Two overall winners will go on to receive an HP Go Global Award for ‘Best Breakthrough Exporter of the Year’ and ‘Next Breakthrough Exporter of the Year.’
