Export Success at the Toledo Chamber can help you and your company develop plans to identify global markets, improve export efficiencies, understand export financing and develop market entry strategies. That's right; you're not just learning about the abstract idea of marketing and doing business abroad, you're actually creating a personalized plan with our experts to get you ready to begin to export. You don't have to worry about preparing your business for exporting being too hard – a common myth, by the way – because we're going to help you do it.
Through this 10-session course, you're also building relationships with other likeminded business leaders. While this year is different, as Export Success is going virtual, you get to reap the reward of tuning in from wherever you are in Ohio. That's right – you no longer have to be located in or around northwest Ohio to take advantage of this incredible class. You now have the opportunity to join in via GoToMeeting no matter whether you're close by in Sylvania or even a few hours away in Cleveland, Cincinnati, Columbus or even across the state in Athens. You'll build camaraderie with businesses from all over the state, forming relationships that you can call on for months and years after you graduate from the 2021 class of Export Success.
This class is a collaboration between you, the Toledo Chamber, the Regional Growth Partnership and every other student in the class. It's an inexpensive and collaborative way to help you expand your company's knowledge about the world of exporting, and learn directly from class mentors who have been exporting for years and know the ins and the outs of expanding abroad.
By participating in Export Success, you'll be ale to properly arrange resources to successfully enter the global market. Don't worry, we're taking out all the guesswork and helping you on your journey toward global expansion. This class is what you need in order to avoid risky and costly mistakes in that process, and our mentors and Export Assistance Director Sabrina D'Onofrio have one goal in mind: to help YOU grow your business through exporting.
Participants will have an opportunity to work with experienced exporters from both the public and private sector who know the best practices for operating in global markets and can offer you their own wisdom as you grow alongside them. The knowledge and tools you'll learn in Export Success will enable your company to execute global strategies quickly, effectively and efficiently. Whether your business has never exported before, you have a new employee whose exporting skills you'd like to hone and craft, or you'd like to refresh your exporting knowledge as an exporting veteran, Export Success is well suited for you.
So, what's holding you back? It's time to join the 2021 class of Export Success!
