The Center for Global Business partners with the Maryland/DC District Export Council and U.S. Commercial Service in Baltimore to offer ExporTech™, a national export assistance program that helps companies entering or expanding in global markets. The program applies a structured export strategy development process and an innovative group consulting model to help companies achieve results. It is the only national program through which each company develops a written export plan that is vetted by a panel of experts upon completion.

ExporTech efficiently connects companies with a wide range of world-class experts to help navigate the export sales process. The result is that companies rapidly expand global sales and get connected to resources in Maryland to help them.

How it Works

The ExporTech program is designed to address each company’s most pressing global expansion needs. By combining weekly group workshops with individual coaching for each company, the program gives company leaders the tools they need to develop an export plan in just 10 weeks. The program also helps companies build connections with export service organizations and resources to support the successful execution of those plans. Learn more about the curriculum.
