"I highly recommend this program to any business owners contemplating export. The instructors provided us with invaluable insights and real life examples on the potential pitfalls associated with export. The unique mentor review process helped us clearly understand the areas of our business that were ready for the next step and those that were not. I believe that this program saved us from many costly mistakes and will translate into quicker market penetration and revenue growth."
