Following the recent announcement of the UKTI Trade Mission to South by South West (SXSW) Interactive 2011 (10th-15th March), there's some rather good news for digital firms based in London who need a helping-hand to take part in the mission.

The marvellous people at UK Trade & Investment London have announced that they have secured 10 grants of up to £500 (tbc)  available for digital companies based inside the M25. This contribution towards the costs of going can be used towards travel and accommodation expenses of taking part in the UKTI SXSW mission.

This grant funding is discretionary and companies will need to secure a place on the UKTI Mission to SXSW and pass an assessment from UKTI London. Successful firms will receive a grant, with the money being paid in arrears.

If you are interested in getting your hands on one of these UKTI London grants, in the first instance please get in touch by dropping us an email to missionatchinwag [dot] com or call Fran on +44 (0)20 7183 2923.

If you are yet to apply for the UKTI Mission to SXSW you can do so by filling out this simple application form, but don't hang around as the deadline is 1st Feb:
