The Global Access Program (GAP), now in its 7th year, was designed to accelerate the entry of export-ready businesses to global markets. This year's focus is on select markets in Singapore, South Korea and the Philippines. This year, we are taking the program virtual.
Held via Zoom, participants of each session will have an interactive experience at no-cost including:
- Advice from global industry experts and leaders
- Breakout forums for more personal connections and business matches
- Opportunity to see & showcase products
- Exposure to resources, preliminary consultation & customized basic research
***CGM is also waiting to hear on a potential grant to culminate the program with a trade show experience in 2021.***
New Component - CGM PartnerConnect
If you are a California-based U.S. firm looking for partnership connections in the Philippines, Singapore, or South Korea, then our government, academic, and industry network is here to help at no cost. Just send firstname.lastname@example.org a one-page brief about your business and the type of partner you are looking for and for what purpose (virtual or physical marketing or sourcing channels, investment partners, technology partners, franchise partners, etc.). Our network partners and student interns will be delighted to arrange one-to-one meetings with prospective collaborators.
