The Department for International Trade is responsible for promoting British trade across the world and ensuring British businesses take advantage of the huge opportunities open to them. 

Formerly called UKTI (United Kingdom Trade and Investment), The Department for International Trade has partnered with Virgin StartUp to provide opportunities to the entrepreneurs who receive Start Up Loan funding through us, give advice via our blog, and to co-host events that help educate entrepreneurs on how to export. 

For more information on how to export, take a look at the Exporting section of our website.
