The Vermont Global Trade Partnership (VGTP) is Vermont’s center for international business assistance. Our programs help all our quality Vermont businesses succeed in international markets by providing access to educational seminars, trade show participation, technical assistance, and one-on-one consulting services. In many areas we also provide grants and funding for businesses to obtain the exposure and necessary infrastructure to make international transactions possible.  We provide the following services, many free or heavily discounted:

  • Educational seminars from our extensive partnership network
  • Market sourcing and leads
  • Trade counseling and education
  • International Reimbursement Grants

The Vermont Global Trade Partnership also provides businesses with other valuable information, like assistance navigating Foreign Trade Zone Agreements. In addition, VGTP attends international trade shows with Vermont businesses. For more information on upcoming opportunities, contact us!

ExporTech is a training program developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Designed for small companies already doing some international sales, the program assists participating companies in developing an international growth plan, provides experts to review their plans, and connects the companies with organizations that will help them move quickly beyond planning to actual export sales.
