Session topic: Export Growth Plan

(Please note: ExporTech began on March 11, but was unfortunately interrupted by the COVID-19 virus.)

ExporTech is a 12 week program that is designed for companies seeking to expand their exports throughout the global market. Facilitated by our Chairman Rudy Ortiz, this program combines group workshops with individual coaching for each company, leading to an export sales plan in just 3 sessions. The peer group model, limited to leaders from 4-5 companies, maximizes impact and propels action with the intention of exporting to new countries within 90 days. The program is ideal for executives of small and mid-size product companies, both new-to-export and those wanting to expand their exports.
