The Trade Accelerator Program
The London Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that we will be hosting the Trade Accelerator Program (TAP) for the first time in London in October of 2019.
BUILD THE RIGHT EXPORT PLAN FOR YOUR BUSINESS WITH EXPERT RESOURCES, ADVICE, AND HANDS-ON MENTORSHIP
TAP CANADA provides companies with access to Canada’s top exporting advisors, resources and contacts, giving them the training and support they need to become successful international traders in their specific business sector.
TAP graduates report an average growth of 42% in export sales one year after participation, and more than 85% of participants have entered new markets since completing the course.
Since its launch in October 2015, TAP has expanded to more than 30 cities across Canada.
To attend the first TAP London Session you must be available to participate in 4 full days of training and mentorship on the following dates:
