This mission constitutes the British Government’s first ever LGBTQ founders trade mission and will include participation in World Pride, which will be taking place in New York City on June 30th.

Trade Missions have seen companies successfully open New York offices, secure venture capital funding, develop new networks, and generate new US business and investment leads.

  • have significant market traction in the UK with globally recognizable clients and/or venture capital funding
