#StartupChats – Exporting 101: How to Grow Your Business

About This Event

Is it time for your business to go global and enter the world of export or have you already touched down in international markets? There is certainly a lot to know before your business goes global, such as becoming export ready and what needs to happen to do so, building your global strategy and connecting with partners in different parts of the world. Regardless, the opportunities on the other side of exporting are endless and can help grow your business tremendously. And now, it is time to figure out how to take your business to the global level.

Join Startup Canada (@Startup_Canada) and Export Development Canada (@ExportDevCanada) on Friday, April 12th for a live #StartupChats on Twitter from 12pm – 1pm ET. Hosted by Lyndon Johnson @THINK_Lyndon, Founder of #Toronto based COMMS Bar, we’ll be learning about Exporting 101: How to Grow Your Business.
