“The Trade Accelerator Program puts fuel on the fire of entrepreneurship. The things you learn are not “nice-to-do’s” they are “must-do’s”. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to take their export game to the next level.”
Dan Wainwright, President, PACRIM Distributors — TAP B.C. Graduate
“TAP is the rocket fuel that BC companies need to power beyond Canada’s borders. The sessions effectively presented export-focused-concepts in the context of how to take action … immediately. Two words: Truly remarkable.”
Marla Brock, CEO, Kidcoover Caregivers Inc. — TAP B.C. Graduate
“TAP created the environment for us to think harder about decision making and strategic planning. It helped us figure out our priorities, made us focus. It has been a foundational building block for the next 3-5 years on how best to approach export markets.”
Oliver Harwood, Owner, Studiostone Creative — TAP B.C. Graduate
