V4 GLOBAL – EXPORT READINESS PROGRAMME

SUPPORTING V4 HEALTHCARE ENTERPRISES
EXPANDING TO THE REGION AND BEYOND

 

The V4 region is a brilliant source of innovators. It has creative minds paired with a hardworking attitude; however, we rarely see globally successful businesses from V4 countries.

Why? Because internationalisation is difficult.

The V4 Global – Export Readiness programme`s mission is to help LifeScience businesses to manage globalisation successfully – by putting them into the right environment where they can learn from experts, build a professional network and develop their skills.
