I learned about export markets, IP and protecting my brand and original designs.
The workshops were fantastic to learn what's required to work at a global level and it's been great to meet other new and established business owners.
This Incubator gave me the confidence to talk to potential funders and helped me identify my markets. Importantly, the program showed me what actions to take to export.
