Workshop aims to help companies launch export lines
Business owners who want to become successful exporters may attend a three-part workshop series that begins July 26.
The workshops, run by Exportech, part of the Delaware Manufacturing Extension Partnership, will help companies develop and execute their own international growth plans.
Companies that export goods grow twice as fast as those that don’t, according to the Small Business Development Center.
The sessions are scheduled July 26, August 23 and September 20 at the Small Business Development Center office, 103 W. Pine Street, Georgetown. In the three sessions, companies will develop vetted, actionable export growth plans with more than 24 hours of personalized coaching from international business experts.
The program is for new-to-export companies who have international sales potential and are ready to make the commitment required to succeed internationally, and for companies that have engaged in some exporting.
The series is sponsored by the Delaware Small Business Development Center, the U.S. Small Business Administration, Fulton Bank, Delaware Manufacturing Extension Partnership, NIST/MEP, the U.S. Commercial Service, Delaware World Trade Center and Federal Express.
