From June to September, the initiative will bring participants together for various training sessions focussed on trade topics, peer discussions and one-on-one coaching.
The sessions will facilitate a combination of peer-to-peer and theoretical learning, bringing in expert speakers from the Export Council of Australia, Facebook, UPS and Spruson & Ferguson.
The topics cover the fundamentals of export including market opportunity analysis, branding and e-commerce, intellectual property protection, border processes and logistics, and trade finance.
After these sessions, the initiative will culminate in a virtual trade mission which will bring together participants and key Australian business and industry stakeholders. The virtual trade mission will be an opportunity for all participants to develop their pitch, business storytelling, and Australian network.
If you would like to be involved in this initiative, including as a potential mentor, buyer, investor, or business partner, or to be connected with the entrepreneurs through the virtual trade mission, please contact Angela Wright.
