Twice now I have travelled to the USA on Trade Missions that have been organised and expertly led by the DIT. The first, a fundraising trip to San Francisco and Las Vegas, was one of the catalysts in Flock’s successful seed fundraise, in that it led to us meeting a range of high-profile investors, some of whom went on to invest. I cannot stress enough how valuable a resource the DIT and their Trade Missions have been in facilitating Flock’s growth, both in the UK and internationally." - Ed Leon Klinger, CEO of Flock, Mission delegate Fall '17 and Spring '18. What to expect on the 2019 Mission:
