Without doubt, many entrepreneurs have thought about selling their product or service outside of Canada. After all, if there is demand in Canada, why wouldn’t there be in other markets? Many have taken exploratory steps into a new market, while some have taken the leap into the United States, and now want to try another part of the world.
Just like starting a business, entering a new market does take research, time and work; but what if you had a team of experts to help get you started and plan for your expansion? The Toronto Region Board Of Trade (TRBOT) began a Trade Accelerator Program (TAP) to help entrepreneurs continue to grow in new markets. They have partnered with experts in different fields like UPS Canada, RBC and EDC to run a two-day program focused on giving practical information and advice to get you started. Once the two-day session is complete, an additional session will assist you in creating a Market Entry Plan.
Plus, if you mention that you were referred by UPS Canada when you apply, the program is free and you will receive a complimentary one year membership to the TRBOT valued at $1,400, if your application to the TAP program is approved! With the membership you can use TRBOT services and network with other businesses in the Toronto Region.
The next TAP session is set for December 13 and 14 so please visit tapgta.com to see if you qualify. If you do, remember to state on the application that you were referred by UPS Canada – it’s a win-win all around!
