The program begins with an intensive two-day workshop to orient participating companies on the program, the exporting resources available to them and how they can build and implement a new market entry plan. Program partners and other experts share insights on international business development and exporting. The objective: equip participants with the basic knowledge needed to support growing globally using presentations, case studies, mock negotiation exercises and interactive group workshops.
Approximately one week later is the one-day Export Planning Session. Participants receive hands-on support from leading Canadian export advisors as they develop their export plan, detailing their strategic objectives, market entry methods, international marketing plan as well as supply chain and operational resources.
Over the next three weeks, the TAP team follows up with participants to support further development of their plan.
The companies have a total of three weeks before they must submit their final export plan. Submitted plans are assessed by the TAP team and its export advisors.
The final day of the program is focused on mentoring, constructive feedback and relationship building. Participants receive 30-minute one-on-one mentoring sessions from each program partner focused on their plan and how to move forward, assisting them with the resources, information and contacts they need to go global.
