Navigating the global marketplace can be difficult. It requires specialized knowledge and a sound strategy based upon proven best practices. WEDC is pleased to announce another round of International Market Access Grants for 2019-2020.

Through WEDC’s IMAG program, established businesses can receive grant support (up to $10,000 or up to $25,000 for graduates of the ExporTech program) to assist with expenses related to:

  • Trade trips and meetings, including registration and booth expenses for shows and exhibits;
  • Market customization such as foreign language translation or international trademark registration;
  • Consulting services through a variety of organizations, including WEDC’s authorized trade representatives, Gold Key services through the U.S. Department of Commerce, as well as others; and
  • Export education assistance with registration for international and export-related conferences, seminars, meetings, webinars and courses.

Companies must be an established business, operating in Wisconsin for at least one year, that manufactures, processes, assembles and/or distributes a product or performs a service with the potential to be exported. The company does not need to be headquartered in Wisconsin, but it must have export-related operations located within the state of Wisconsin that provide economic benefit.
