Export Grants

aumake – Helping Australian Businesses Secure Export Grants

aumake is partnering with the grant funding experts at Axito to make securing an Export Market Development Grant for your business easier than ever.

The Australian Government offers the Export Market Development Grant (EMDG) through Austrade to Australian small and medium enterprises. The EMDG aims to encourage SMEs to expand into foreign markets, resulting in the stimulation of our economy on a global scale and the improvement of Australia’s trade relationships.

The EMDG offers targeted financial assistance for the development of promotional activities and marketing strategies. Essentially, the EMDG refunds half of a business’s foreign export marketing costs, up to certain limits, depending on the nature and size of your business.

Australian companies that receive the EMDG must spend at least an equal amount of their own money on eligible expenses.  All applicants who are eligible, will be offered a grant agreement. The grant program lasts for 8 years, with the cash contributions from the Government growing along with your business.

The Chinese marketing landscape differs significantly from that which Australian SME’s may be familiar with. aumake’s extensive cultural and technical knowledge in marketing to China means we give your business all the tools required to find success in the Chinese market. Including a sales force of over 30,000 people, content creation and management, brand persona development, marketing training, organisation of trips abroad for you and your clients, (boarder restrictions permitting) and highly skilled social eCommerce/ WeChat marketing.

Our services cover both Australia-based and China-based marketing requirements. All of the marketing services that aumake offers to help boost your company’s export sales are eligible to be covered by the EMDG.

In partnering with Axito, aumake essentially cuts the cost of your export marketing in half. We become the ‘one-stop-shop’ for ensuring your business is leveraging the grant funding available from the Government whilst getting the highest quality marketing services and slashing your marketing budget in half.

Axito’s experienced team takes care of all aspects of your application, including guiding you in deciding which tier of funding you should apply for. Once your initial EMDG is secured, Axito will continue to provide support for the subsequent applications that are required over the 8 years, as applicants are required to update their details with Austrade in years 3 and 6.

The partnership between aumake and Axito makes it easier than ever for Australian SMEs to secure the EMDG funding and see their business growth within new, exciting foreign markets.
