The Maritime Alliance (TMA) has partnered with the International Trade Administration, part of the U.S. Department of Commerce, to organize and partially fund an initiative to increase exports from small maritime technology companies (typically $2MM revenue and 20 people or below with limited trade show experience) from throughout the United States.
With partial funding through the Market Development Cooperator Program (MDCP), this three-year export initiative will focus on markets primarily in Europe and Latin America, with a secondary focus in Asia. There will be separate applications for each year of the initiative.
