GLOBAL BUSINESS ACADEMY
World Trade Center Buffalo Niagara’s Global Business Academy (GBA) is a new program for companies getting started in export, or enhancing their existing export international business. Through this nine-week course, companies will be educated by experts from the bi-national Buffalo Niagara region, enjoy 1-on-1 mentoring relationships and create their own export plan.
To help companies gain more insight into the program, World Trade Center Buffalo Niagara hosted an informational seminar last week, which can be seen here.
All educational courses and mentoring sessions of the GBA will be delivered via Zoom. The GBA will also feature “open office hours,” enabling participants to interact and get questions answered in a group setting as they complete their export plans.
GBA participants should expect lots of relevant information, worthwhile interactions with speakers, mentors and peer companies, and game-changing strategies to grow your business. Thanks to the generous contributions from our sponsors, cost of the GBA program (typically $2,000) is only $495, some of which may be eligible for grant reimbursement upon completion of the program. Participating companies also get a one-year membership to WTCBN for continued support.
Topics to be covered include Export Plan Development, International Trade Resources,
Sales, International Marketing, Financial, Insurance, Legal Protection, International Tax, Process, Logistics and Supply Chain, E-Commerce.
Grant opportunities are available
