The Export Accelerator is a ninety-day program that consists of two workshops, intensive coaching and a Demo Day (industry experts, potential customers and investors) The IBA has helped companies with product, services and a combination of products and services. By the end of the three months, the company will have:
- Export Strategy to enter the markets of your choice. This is not a cookie cutter approach. For some companies, the Export Strategy will include identification of vetted distributors/agents while for other companies, the strategy will develop e-commerce and online strategies. The strategy will clear your hurdles to cross and illuminate paths forward to sales
- Expansion Plan to lay out the operational changes the company will have to make to successfully export products or services. This will include finance requirements and how to meet them (loans, angel/VC finance or crowd equity finance)
- Market Research on your Specific Market Our trained interns will prepare a product specific study on your target market, market entry requirements, best practices and product/service competitiveness
- Investor or Client Presentation Our team (including research interns and investor pitch coach) will work with you to develop a DEMO Day presentation that will engage your audience and motivate them to close the deal.
