Global Delaware seeks input from Delaware companies about exports

Global Delaware Helps Local Companies Compete on an International Stage
Delaware companies that share their export goals can win lunch with Governor Markell.

Delaware companies grow and succeed when they compete in the global marketplace. Governor Markell couldn’t agree more. And, to show his support, he’s offered to have lunch with a current or future exporter!
Over the last year, Global Delaware revamped the State’s export program to help even more Delaware companies find and grow markets overseas, and secured a Federal STEP grant to provide financial support for companies seeking to export.

Now, Global Delaware is looking ahead to next year to tap additional federal funding to support local export efforts. To do this, Global Delaware needs input from the local business community, and is offering a chance to win lunch with Governor Markell as thanks for participating.

“We have resources and financial assistance waiting for companies that want to take their business abroad,” explained Global Delaware Director Andrea Tinianow. “Our local businesses can help by telling us which countries hold the most export potential for their products and services. We’ll use that information to seek additional funding and grow our calendar of events and activities.”

Delaware businesses that share information about their export interests will be entered to win lunch with Governor Markell. Tinianow noted that international commerce has been a priority of Gov. Markell’s administration. “Participation in the global marketplace is critical to drive more jobs and increased revenue in the State, and the Governor fully supports Global Delaware’s export program.

Company responses will be used to plan new events and activities, as well as provide vital information for the State’s application for additional STEP grants, Tinianow explained.
