The Chamber’s Starting in the UK (SUK) programme advises Portuguese companies who wish to expand their existing operations into the UK market on how best they should proceed. Typically this will include advising them on market research, business development, lead generation and setting up a distributor or agency network.
Over the past five years, the Chamber has built up an invaluable network of contacts that can help Portuguese companies successfully expand their business into the UK. We know who are your potential distributors, sales agents, business development consultants, lead generation companies, and marketing and social media advisors.
The UK is a highly competitive market to enter, but extremely lucrative for those who can make it work and commit the necessary resources to the task. We can help you get started!
One of the companies we recently helped under our Starting in the UK programme was Portugal’s Euro 10m CMM healthcare chain, which already has 15 clinics and 700 staff in mainland Portugal.
In September 2020, CMM opened their first UK clinic in Brentford, West London, with a five year plan to open up to 20 more clinics here.
In this short 4-min video, our General Manager Christina Hippisley meets Ramiro Salgado, founder of R&B Global Solutions, and interim UK Country Manager of CMM Medical and Rehabilitation Centres. Hear more about how Ramiro and CMM navigated the problems of opening during the 2020 pandemic and what lessons he has learned about the British market.
