With the right pitch, you might have a chance at getting $5,000 to support your export efforts! VCU’s Center for Urban and Regional Analysis is sponsoring The Global Pitch, a competition where businesses describe their export plan to a panel of judges to vie for one of five $5,000 awards. The winners will be judged based on their plan, their service or product, country targeted and ability to perform. The Global Pitch will be held in the Fall of 2017, and our hopes are to make this an annual competition.

According to the Institute for International Economics, U.S. companies that export grow faster and are nearly 8.5 percent less likely to go out of business than non-exporting companies.
