Export Champion Applications

CommonwealthFirst supports SMEs to trade and invest across the Commonwealth. The programme is developed by a partnership between the Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council and Royal Mail with the support from i-genius as implementation partner.



Over three years, 100 leading UK SMEs will be selected to become Commonwealth Export Champions. Export Champions will be provided with unique access and support in their quest to win new business in the fast growing Commonwealth markets. Their success will be showcased as an encouragement to the wider UK business community.

Applications to become an Export Champion for the CommonwealthFirst programme are ongoing. All submissions will be considered for our fourth and final cohort to be announced in autumn 2017.
