ExportMD helps 16 companies go global
MARYLAND — Sixteen small and mid-sized Maryland companies have been awarded ExportMD grants to help promote their products and services in the global marketplace.
The ExportMD grant program is administered by the Maryland Department of Commerce and helps businesses finance the costs of marketing internationally, including trade show fees, brochures and travel expenses. Applications for the ExportMD program are accepted on a bi-monthly basis and the next application deadline is April 1, 2016. Eligibility requirements can be found on the Commerce website.
Commerce will lead a delegation of companies in April to Hannover Messe – the world’s leading event for industrial technology. DigitaLogic, Inc., a Baltimore engineering company, will use the ExportMD grant to travel to Germany and explore the global market.
“We feel that Hannover Messe is the appropriate venue for us to engage the broader international market. We’ve had great success with our product nationally, and we can use this trip to evaluate the possibility of a global expansion,” said Ali Khorramshahi, president of DigitaLogic. “We thank the Commerce team for their professional and cordial support that made this possible for us.”
