Export Growth Grants
This grant facility targets Palestinian medium and large firms from the agriculture, IT and light manufacturing sectors that are successfully exporting and have the potential to enter new markets or expand in existing markets. The facility also targets firms whose exports have declined as a result of COVID-19 and associated market disruptions.
The facility will support a wide range of activities, including but not limited to product development, new export market development, packaging, promotion, and distribution. The development of innovative services and purchases of equipment are eligible for funding. We offer cost and risk-sharing partnerships that support firms to further invest in enhancing their competitiveness and the competitiveness of their local suppliers.
Tasdeer will accept applications from individual firms and consortia of firms together with their suppliers. Integrating supply chains into proposals is encouraged.
Selected export growth concepts will be entitled to receive a grant from Tasdeer to fund supported firm activities. Our average grant size is expected to be £70,000 and our cost-share will vary based on the associated level of risk. Please contact us for more details.
Interested firms and/or consortia can submit a concept note to apply for support from Tasdeer. Tasdeer will work with firms whose concepts are eligible to develop a detailed Export Growth Plan (EGP). Each approved EGP will receive a Tasdeer grant to implement EGP activities and achieve the intended growth results.
