ExporTech Workshop for LA County Businesses

Posted by SCVEDC Staff

Are you ready to expand your business through exporting? Exporting gives you access to new customers, expanding sales, and increased profits!

ExporTech is the only national program that helps individual companies develop an export plan. They are offering workshop sessions for LA County/San Fernando Valley beginning February 16. These sessions will include:

  • 3 sessions - one session each month (2/16, 3/30, 4/27)
  • Matchmaking and introductions to customers overseas
  • Executive coaching to assist you with your export plan
  • Access to experts in logistics, legal, banking, regulatory and distributors
  • Assistance with selecting the best countries for your products
  • Develop your own export plan with experts
  • Start exporting in as little as 3 months

They are pleased to be offering a scholarship program. Your commitment is to attend three sessions over a 60 day period where you will utilize tools to structure an export plan that will help your company to address key areas of the export process, including market identification, regulation and compliance, logistics, and matchmaking with potential customers in foreign markets. On average, California manufacturers who have participated in the program have generated between $500K and $1M in export sales within the first 6-12 months.

The only initial commitment is a $750 deposit to hold your seat, which is fully refundable once you attend the first session. If you cannot attend the first session, cancellation in writing must be received 21 days prior to the start date of the first session for a full refund. This deposit covers 2 executives from your company. Due to the customized nature of this program, no more than 8 companies participate in each ExporTech program. None of your competitors will be in your session.

After one year of having implemented your export growth plan, and if your company has generated a minimum of $100K in additional export sales, we ask that you provide a $5,000 ExporTech scholarship to another manufacturer to assist them with their export effort.
