International Market Support Program

The Ohio Development Services Agency works with representatives internationally to provide opportunities for Ohio businesses to increase export sales and create jobs through the International Market Support Program.

Many small businesses don’t have the local market expertise or relationships to expand their business in the international market. The in-market representatives assist with providing detailed market research and matchmaking with potential customers.
