We are delighted to announce that we have accepted an invitation onto the London & Partners Mayor’s International Business Programme (MIBP), supported by the Mayor of London. The programme champions London-based scale-ups in their efforts to expand internationally by providing access to mentorship, expert advice, virtual trade missions, focused e-workshops and events, as well as introductions to potential new business partners.
Dhaval Gore, Head of the Mayor’s International Business Programme at London & Partners, said: “I am delighted to welcome Do it Now Now to the Mayor’s International Business Programme (MIBP). To date, the MIBP has helped more than 1000 high-growth London companies win business in international markets, creating more than 1700 jobs for the global economy. We are extremely proud to be shining a light on what London’s fastest-growing businesses have to offer overseas.”
Commenting on Do it Now Now’s inclusion, our CEO, Bayo Adelaja said: “I’m excited to be taking part in this prestigious programme and for the opportunity to collaborate and share knowledge with some amazing business leaders over the next 12 months. Do it Now Now has experienced tremendous growth in the last year and our team has been proud to deliver critical services to Black-led organisations working hard to support their communities. We hope our participation in the Mayor’s International Business Programme will facilitate our organisation's further growth and capacity to deliver greater impact.”
The MIBP welcomes a new cohort every quarter, with notable alumni including companies such as Monzo, Revolut, Elvie and Bloom & Wild. Do it Now Now will have its first opportunity to meet fellow cohort members, programme partners and mentors at the MIBP’s virtual Cohort 20 Launch Week starting on Monday 12 July. Part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the MIBP is supported by five lead partners: Ciklum, Globalization Partners, Microsoft, Taylor Wessing and Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati.
