Lizard-based Clayworks Ltd was last night named as one of the UK’s seventeen most promising and innovative ‘cleantech’ SMEs ready to do business overseas.
As a result, the company will next month take part in Clean and Cool Mission Brazil – a week long trade trip to Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paolo, organised by innovation agency, The Technology Strategy Board, together with The Long Run Venture and UK Trade and Investment.
David Bott, director of innovation programmes at the Technology Strategy Board, explained: “The aim of the mission is to foster partnerships and collaborations between British cleantech companies and Brazilian government agencies, businesses and investors.
“Brazil is the fifth largest market in the world with a broad and sophisticated industrial base. This week-long event will open up the Brazilian market to the Mission businesses, boost Britain’s growing clean technology sector and drive inward investment to the UK.”
The winning companies were announced last night in London at the Brazilian Embassy.
