Commitment to Action

A Growth Strategy for Small Business Global Expansion

Commitment by

Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP)

In 2012, Women Impacting Public Policy committed to developing and implementing a global export expansion education program targeted at helping 5,000 small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), with an additional emphasis on women-owned SMEs. The program will guide current exporters to expand to other countries and guide them through the developmental steps they require to prepare to export, covering the basics of exporting and leading them through an assessment to determine if the participant's company and its product or service could be a fit for the export market. The curriculum for each round of participants lasts one year. WIPP expects that out of the 5,000 targeted SMEs, 1,500 will prove viable candidates to export, 250 will build an export development plan, and 100 will expand their existing exporting operation to additional countries.
