New to Export Program
Are you taking advantage of the demand for Queensland products worldwide?
Over the last few years Queensland companies have experienced record-breaking export results, with the value of goods and services exports from the state consistently greater than both New South Wales and Victoria combined.
Taking the first steps to export success can be a complicated process which is why Trade and Investment Queensland has introduced the New to Export program.
The program is open to Queensland businesses who haven’t previously exported and caters to a vast scope of business sizes, industries, sectors and regions from across the state.
Successful applicants receive comprehensive and focused mentoring and training in a program designed to enable your business to scale and deliver commercial export success.
The program is an intensive 12-month initiative which guides you through an informed process of evaluation and designing export strategies, while equipping you with the skills you need for successful export outcomes.
In addition, participating businesses are supported with matched grant funding of up to $15,000 to get the export ball rolling.
- $15,000 matched contribution grant for export strategy implementation
