The International Trade Accelerator Program (TAP)

What is the TAP?

The International Trade Accelerator Program (TAP) is designed for startups and SMEs in Québec. It will help you develop your international strategy in just a few weeks!

Each cohort is made up of about 15 companies with which you can share your issues, challenges and experiences.

In these sessions, a team of seasoned advisers with expertise in marketing, finance, logistics, border regulations and intellectual property will help you think things through and set up an international business plan.

The TAP also helps you:

  • Create your internal roadmap
  • Anticipate risks (customs, financial…)
  • Structure your commercial strategy
  • Apply for financing

Why should I participate in the TAP?
