The program begins with an intensive two-day training session in Calgary to orient participating companies on the program, the exporting resources available to them, and how they can build and implement a new Market Entry Plan.
The instruction will be delivered by leading Canadian export advisors through dynamic interactive workshops.
A few days following the two-day workshop, participant companies will come back to follow an intensive day of mentoring to start elaborating their export strategy and write their export plan.
Experts in international business development will provide individual coaching to each participant to guide them through the Export Assessment Tool, which will then be analyzed by leading Canadian export advisors.
Each participating company will receive a short report outlining the strengths and gaps related to their company's Market Entry Plan.
Through this process, participating companies will be matched with the TAP Calgary's lead and supporting partners to fill in the gaps.
TAP Calgary's lead & supporting partners and the export specialists of Calgary Economic Development will spend individual time with each participant to help them finalize their new Market Entry Plan.
By the end of the process participating firms can expect to have a new Market Entry Plan, which they are beginning to activate with assistance from TAP Calgary's lead & supporting partners.
These organizations are resolved to help participating companies take the first step into a new market by assisting them with the resources, information and contacts they need to go global.
