Five Idaho companies seeking further exporting opportunities, while learning from the state’s top business experts were recognized during the culmination of Idaho’s Export Excellence Program, Nov. 18, at Murphy’s Steakhouse in Boise.
Executives from Idaho-based, PCS Edventures, Preco, Sloan Security Group, Pure Light, and Scentsy participated, with PCS Edventures receiving a $700 Gold Key Service. The service entitles the company to pursue further exporting and growth opportunities through one-on-one arranged appointments with pre-screened business contacts in a targeted export market.
The three-day event was designed to provide companies with tools and information about increasing their exporting abilities and create an Export Expansion Plan. Led by members of the Idaho District Export Council, U.S. Commercial Service, Idaho Tech Help, and NIST Manufacturing Extension Partnership, research assistance was provided by Boise State business students, said Export Excellence Chairman and Stoel Rives attorney Jason Prince.
“Each company was able to present their export plan to a panel of local experts,” Prince said. “There was a high level of interest and participation this year.”
