What We Do:
EXPORT TRAINING AND EDUCATION:
These trainings are designed to inform a group of businesses about the basics of exporting, the steps needed to take in order to find out which global markets to pursue, and state/federal programs that can support companies financially with their global efforts.
Through our Buy Nevada Program (
), and support from the Western United States Agricultural Trade Association (WUSATA) (
), our team can assist businesses directly with their international marketing efforts.
CUSTOMIZED ONE-ON-ONE INTERNATIONAL MARKET RESEARCH:
This program is designed to give companies detailed market research support. Our team will sit with companies, one-on-one, to find out which international markets are importing a company's product and show how a company can be competitive in that international market.
