Helping our Hamilton companies export to international markets

Helping local companies create market entry strategies to promote products/services internationally.

Project Description: Global Hamilton is housed inside of Economic Development. We help immigrants, newcomers, and international entrepreneurs start and grow their businesses in Hamilton. We also support on Foreign Direct Investment where we connect international firms with opportunities here in Hamilton. We also have companies in Hamilton that are interested in exploring international markets for their products and services. This project aims to connect local firms with international students that have experience in those markets... to help them develop a market strategy for entering foreign markets.
