Today, Croud launches its new study of Britain’s SME exporters: Going global: The UK SMEs making exporting look easy. The report uncovers Brexit, data management and international marketing as the top pressure points for business leaders.

63% of SMEs see Brexit as one of the biggest challenges for British exporters in the next 3-5 years

British exported goods and services play a huge role in the strength of the UK economy, accounting for around 20% of GDP. In this latest report, SME exporters share their thoughts on gaining a better understanding of the relationship between data use and company growth, as well as the opportunities and challenges facing SMEs post-GDPR, and ahead of Brexit.
