The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation can call upon a wide variety of experiences in international research, sales, shipping, banking, and diplomacy in order to assist Wisconsin’s exporting community
WEDC’s International Business Development team will work one-on-one with beginning and experienced exporters in order to:
- Assess the demand for Wisconsin-made products outside of the United States and help plan a firm’s approach to international markets in a systematic fashion
- Introduce Wisconsin businesses to potential customers, distributors, or partners in other parts of the world
- Support service providers here in Wisconsin who can assist in developing profitable international transactions
Our International Business Development team is based in Madison; in outreach offices in other parts of the state; and in Brazil, Canada, China and Mexico in order to serve exporters thoughout Wisconsin.
Our Global Business Development Program aids the growth and expansion of the state’s exports by providing matching grant funding to Wisconsin businesses for export training, development, and promotion activities. The program consists of two grant components that are designed with flexibility to best meet the specific export development and international trade promotion needs of the Wisconsin company.
