The World Trade Organisation has announced Wandsworth-based name label company My Nametags as runner up in its international Small Businesses Going Global Video Challenge.
My Nametags, which operates from a small office yet distributes to 127 countries across the world, was chosen from a line-up of international companies for its use of technology in growing its global business.
The company, which produces personalised name labels, uses a variety of technology, including Google Adwords, social media and AdRoll, to reach its ever-growing global audience.
The world-wide challenge, launched by Google in partnership with the International Chamber of Commerce and the World Trade Organisation (WTO) earlier this year, invited small and medium-sized enterprises from across the globe to share how they have used internet technologies to participate in trade through a short video.
The My Nametags video was screened alongside the other winning videos at the WTO’s Ministerial Conference in Buenos Aires which was attended by ministers representing all 164 of WTO’s members.
The winner and runners up have won a trip to a master class in digital skills tailored to micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) at Google’s Head Office.
