SBDC Export Assistance Network
The Ohio Development Services Agency’s Export Assistance Office has a new name for its specialized export service centers, called the Ohio SBDC Export Assistance Network. These services are available at seven regional Ohio Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs) located across the state.
Formerly known as International Trade Assistance Centers (ITACs), the Ohio SBDC Export Assistance Network will continue to offer the same great service to help grow your business internationally.
Export services include no-cost, confidential counseling from Export Assistance Network Directors; in-depth market research in more than 40 countries to help small businesses build local relationships and identify quality distributors; international marketing grants to encourage more investment into market development; and export-trained internships to support export growth.
If you are interested in exporting your goods and services into international markets, contact your local Ohio SBDC Export Assistance Director, by clicking here (PDF).
