Trade Accelerator Program: Agri, Food and Beverage Cohort

March 25, 2021


Co-delivered by the Mississauga Board of Trade and World Trade Centre-Toronto, the Trade Accelerator Program is a dynamic, hands-on workshop for small- and medium-sized enterprises, providing SMEs with the essential knowledge, resource, and coaching to help your business grow its revenue and enter markets beyond Canada.

Each session is delivered virtually over 5 weeks with half-day weekly sessions concluded with a virtual mentoring session. By the end of the program, companies will walk away with a complete strategic export plan, carefully vetted by our industry leading partners and sponsors.
