Export Specialty Center
San Diego and Imperial Small Business Development Center (SBDC) has contracted with World Trade Center San Diego (WTCSD) in a unique partnership that brings an Export Specialty Center to the region, housed at WTCSD. The Center focuses on no-cost advising and training for small businesses in order to cultivate a pipeline of export-ready firms.
The partnership allows the WTCSD team to build upon the export support that we deliver through our MetroConnect program. While MetroConnect serves a competitively-selected cohort of export-ready companies each year, the SBDC work will focus on getting small businesses to a point where they are positioned for international growth, which we know will grow jobs, increase revenues, and improve resiliency.
