Training Program Leads to ‘Export Success’
Ohio Department of Development
A 10-session training program helps meet the needs of small and medium-sized businesses interested in expanding into global markets. The program, called Export Success, can help companies develop plans to identify global markets, improve export efficiencies, understand export financing, and develop market-entry strategies.
Export Success participants meet monthly via Zoom for a targeted topic session. Topics include:
- International sales process
- Legal issues
- International marketing, banking, and finance issues
- Logistics and incoterms
- Cross-cultural communications
- Developing and executing an export plan
Export Success provides a collaborative environment for participants to build their export knowledge. Participants will learn how to arrange resources to enter the global marketplace. Participants will have an opportunity to work with experienced exporters and others from the public and private sectors who offer current best practices for operating in global markets. The knowledge and tools learned in Export Success will enable companies to execute global strategies more quickly and effectively.
Companies can apply now for the next 10-session course, which begins February 2022. The cost to participate is $2,000 for Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce members an $2,300 for non-members. Companies throughout Ohio can participate.
Companies also may qualify for 100% reimbursement under the Export Training Grant through Development’s International Market Access Grant for Exporters. For more information about the Export Training Grant, email IMAGE@Development.Ohio.Gov.
