MetroConnect, the flagship program of WTC San Diego, provides small- and medium-sized companies with the resources necessary to engage in global markets.

MetroConnect awards companies with matching funds, connects them with relevant export-oriented partners and resources, and arranges specialized workshops to increase their knowledge and awareness of global export trends and regulations.


MetroConnect applications for 2020 are now closed. In light of COVID-19, we are operating MetroConnect remotely for this year’s cohort. Stay tuned for updates on this year’s cohort.


Since MetroConnect’s start, WTCSD has worked with 65 companies. Here are their cumulative results:
