Answered By: 
The Mayor

The US GREAT TECH Expedition was advertised on the GLA Website and on the mission's own website.  Information was also distributed to Tech organisations such as The Education Foundation, Tech City UK and Level 39 and sent to businesses that have registered with UKTI through their marketing campaigns, events and website. The process for selecting businesses was conducted by a UKTI and GLA officer on the following criteria;  i) An SME based in London ii) potential of exporting or launching services or apps in the US market.
