Export Opportunity for Illinois Companies Open NOW

Metro Chicago Exports is “an unprecedented collaboration between the seven counties in Northeastern Illinois (Cook, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake, McHenry and Will) and the City of Chicago to increase exports from small and medium-sized companies and to support regional job growth.” This program offers grants and resources to companies in Northeastern Illinois to export their goods and services.

Before exporting, consider whether your company is ready to export:

  1. Why do you want to do business in new countries?
  2. Do you know who your clients are and what industries they operate in?
  3. Do you have a budget for marketing and development overseas?
  4. Do you currently have existing sales in the U.S.?
  5. Are there employees at your company whose primary focus is/will be on exporting?

If you have considered these questions and are ready to export, apply to the Metro Chicago Exports program before May 26th!

However, if you feel like you are not quite ready to export, or want to learn more, feel free to fill out our free self-assessment. This extensive assessment is designed specifically to help companies evaluate, internally, the readiness of your company to do business abroad.
