The British Bid is a global initiative designed to demonstrate the best in British business, flying the flag of British excellence and, ultimately, generating new growth via overseas trade.

Exporting is key to UK growth, we and our partners are determined to support companies to succeed in global markets. We are excited to tell the stories of great British business, enabling them to succeed internationally.

Our intention is to do so by showcasing some of the very best of British business- it’s heritage, innovation, quality and in doing so ultimately extend their global reach.


The UK is known the world over for its enterprise and innovation. Nowhere is this more evident than in the inventiveness and determination of its businesses, particularly the UK’s 5.5 million+ S/ME’s which generate over half of overall GDP.

Despite this, only 11% of UK businesses export.

This needs to change.

The British Bid is warmly inviting the very best of British business and providing them with a platform to be a voice of excellence for their industry across the globe.
