The Elevate Programme continues to be relevant post the BREXIT referendum.  The exact nature of any New Trade Agreements as a result of Brexit are still unknown.  Whatever the outcome, now is the time to get a foothold in the cross-border market.It will be more advantageous to evolve your business model in a newly secured market as regulations change than to attempt that foothold in a newly changed market place.
