Massachusetts Export Center


Is your company taking advantage of growing global markets?

Massachusetts exporting firms have benefited from significant growth in global markets over the past ten years: Latin America up 99.4%, Africa up 123.7%, Europe up 91.3% and Asia up 93.5%!

Studies consistently show that exporting firms are far healthier, more profitable and more competitive than their non-exporting counterparts. Even successful exporters can often expand their global reach by targeting new export markets or improving operations in existing export markets.

The Massachusetts Export Center is pleased to launch the Export Growth Initiative, a program designed for new and existing exporters seeking to expand their international market base. The Initiative focuses on four export-oriented industry clusters:

    u Life Sciences
    u Renewable Energy
    u Software (Enterprise Applications)
    u Specialty Foods & Seafood

The Massachusetts Export Centerís statewide team of export specialists will help your firm develop an export growth strategy and provide you with the tools, information and contacts necessary to succeed in new export markets. Examples of the services offered through the Export Growth Initiative include: export counseling, technical assistance and strategic planning; export market analysis; and identification of agents, distributors and other contacts in target export markets. The Export Growth Initiative is designed to help companies at any stage of the export process and is offered at no charge to qualifying participants!

To qualify for the Export Growth Initiative, your company must meet the following three criteria:
  • The company must be an established Massachusetts firm in one of the industry sectors listed above with the potential for future employment growth in the state;
  • The company and its products must have reasonable potential for export growth;
  • The company must demonstrate the ability and commitment to expand into export markets
