We wanted to let you know about a new program that Enterprise Edmonton is launching in conjunction with the Chamber of Commerce. The program has already proven to be a success in Ontario and is referred to as the Trade Accelerator Program (TAP) which is an innovative, effective and comprehensive six-week program helping Canada’s SMEs strategically scale-up and overcome barriers to exporting. Through TAP, Edmonton Region SMEs can access a wide range of resources, tools and training to be successful in the global environment. Participating companies will establish key contacts, access targeted expertise in a broad range of fields from top industry experts and formalize their export strategy by completing an export plan.
The uniqueness and success of TAP resides in its dynamic hands-on approach to training companies, the direct involvement of top experts from the private and public sectors, the aggressive efforts to stay away from traditional academic ways of teaching business development and the personalized coaching given to each participating company. The program will launch with the first uptake of business early in September so please check-out the detailed information available on their website www.investedmontonregion.com.
