The International Business Accelerator (IBA) announces IBA ONLINETM, a business acceleration program to launch companies into global markets. Most business owners don’t realize that their businesses can easily grow globally. Studies show that companies that compete in global markets grow faster, are more innovative and ultimately more profitable. Whether a company has a product or service, IBA ONLINETM provides companies the tools to craft export strategies that dramatically reduce cross-border risk while boosting the bottom line.
IBA ONLINETM offers both recorded video content and one-on-one coaching, and companies leave with an executable roadmap into global expansion. Founders access content on their own schedules, from anywhere in the world, to build businesses that thrive around the globe.
The IBA, as the first US accelerator to focus on global business, has developed a proven comprehensive curriculum that teaches companies how to build an executable roadmap into global expansion. The program has two components: online on-demand training videos and six-hours of one-on-one business coaching.
What You Need to Know for Your Company
IBA ONLINETM is divided into six modules:
- Export Readiness
- Market Identification
- Market Entry Strategies
Each company develops its customized expansion roadmap. That plan addresses every critical facet, including, compliance safeguards, investor pitch deck revised for global projections, IP protection, cross-border taxation, FX strategies, cross-cultural communication, international contract law and more.
The IBA does not take equity and is not affiliated with any investment fund. As a nonprofit economic development organization, the IBA identifies the best step forward for a company, be it organic growth, government grants, debt, equity or crowd-equity funding. By focusing on the company, instead of the funding, the IBA helps the founders retain control to maximize their returns and ensure responsible growth.)
