Trade Accelerator Program

Prepare your business for the next level.

The Trade Accelerator Program is an innovative 4-session initiative, designed to accelerate the strategic development of your business and to better prepare you for an expansion into international markets.

Grow with the right tools.

We will connect your business with top industry experts, provide you with the necessary coaching needed to build a personalized export strategy, and equip you with the tools and resources to find success as you grow your business.

Program Outline

Phase 1: Discover

The program begins with an intensive two-day workshop that familiarizes participants with the available exporting resources, introduces high-level experts in key functions of international trade, stimulates peer-to-peer exchange of ideas & experiences, and provides guidance in recognizing and handling business challenges.

Phase 2: Develop

Approximately one week later, participants return for the Export Plan Day where they will receive hands-on support from leading Canadian export advisors. Participants will initiate the key sections of their export plan, detailing strategic objectives, market entry methods, international marketing plan, as well as supply chain and operational resources.

Phase 3: Build

Over the following three weeks, participants will develop their trade plan. They will have the full support of export advisors to guide and assist them in developing an export plan that is realistic, high quality, and fully integrated with their overall business strategy. All export plans receive a written assessment from our expert team.

Phase 4: Accelerate

The final day of the program is focused on mentoring, constructive feedback, solutions, and reinforcing business relationships. After reviewing the export plan, participants will receive individual mentoring sessions from our expert partners where potential solutions and ways forward are explored.

The sessions were informative, specific and actionable - packed with information that we can actually come back and start applying to our business instantly.
