Bringing Innovation to
the Mississippi Gulf Coast

The Innovation Center, in partnership with the U.S. Commercial Service and the MS Export Assistance Center, have designed this program to assist Mississippi small businesses in learning the fundamentals for exporting products and services by developing skills in international marketing, trade finance, and global logistics.

The program is created for first-time exporters or for those firms considering expanding to a new global market. Key trade sessions presented at the port of Gulfport International Airport will facilitate an optimal learning experience for firms to obtain first-h and trade knowledge and application by having access to the trade, transportation and logistics resources available to them.
