Exportech trains small business in exports at MSU this fall
BOZEMAN, Mont. — Exportech, a national program to boost small and medium-sized business exports is offering its services in Montana in November. The program is available through Montana State University (MSU) in a nine-week training course giving hands-on training in international business and export plans.
Each nine-week session is capped at 10 companies. Each will receive training in group sessions and individual coaching as it develops an export plan ready to go at the end of the semester. Exportech helps each company implement these export plans. The program also helps the companies boost their presence at trade shows and trade missions.
Exportech is a program through the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Companies that participate in the training program generate an average of $770,000 the first year.
The program begins Nov. 16 through MSU’s Montana Manufacturing Extension Center (MMEC) as part of the national Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership of the NIST.
