The right strategy for your export business Entering new markets and starting an export business is an interesting, often even vital aim of small and medium-sized companies. However, it is also cost and labour-intensive. In IDM’s Export Coach programme, export professionals help companies with their specific export projects: They prepare South Tyrolean businesses for successful overseas operations and develop an appropriate export strategy with the company. Objective Thinking about getting into the export business? Looking for new sales channels and markets? Want to develop and implement an internationalisation plan? In its Export Coach service, IDM provides you with an experienced export manager for at least one year (can be extended to two years), to build your overseas business professionally and sustainably. Our service Initial consultation: IDM employees hold an initial consultation with you and analyse your company’s needs. We then find a suitable coach and organise a coordination meeting with IDM employees in attendance. Once you choose a coach, an Export Check is performed. Export Check: Together with an IDM employee, the coach carries out an Export Check in your company and assesses its readiness for internationalisation. The coach then develops a tailored internationalisation plan with an internal team, which already specifies initial market entry measures. Implementation/coaching: The coach spends max. two days a week in your business for one year, and implements the internationalisation plan with you. They ensure that the company pursues the goals set continuously and sustainably over an extended period. They share their expertise and help find solutions, also providing support and motivation. The service can be financially supported. We will be happy to inform and advise you about the exact funding guidelines and conditions.
