ExporTech helps companies enter or expand in global markets. The program assists participating companies in developing an international growth plan, provides experts who will vet their plans, and connects the companies with organizations like yours that will help them move quickly beyond planning to actual export sales.
ExporTech is deployed nationally as a collaboration between the Manufacturing Extension Partnership, U.S. Export Assistance Centers, and other partners including District Export Councils, State Trade Economic and Development, Ex-Im Bank and SBA. These partners help to recruit participants, line up speakers, and in many cases, serve as speakers themselves in the ExporTech sessions. Customized to the specific learning needs of participants, each workshop is limited to six to eight participating companies to provide sufficient time and attention to each company’s specific challenges. The companies meet for three one-day sessions over a three-month period, and, in between sessions, participants work on developing their export plans.
