What is the Atlanta Metro Export Challenge
The Atlanta Metro Export Challenge (Atlanta MEC) is a dynamic grant program designed to engage and challenge metro Atlanta companies to think about their export strategies and to move them to act. The objectives of the program:
- To challenge companies to develop proactive export plans
- To drive companies to action on those export plans
- To increase exposure and awareness for impact of exports in metro Atlanta
Atlanta MEC is a part of the Atlanta Metro Export Plan (Atlanta MEP), which launched in 2015, with the intent 1) to increase the number of metro Atlanta companies that export and 2) to increase the value of goods and services exported from metro Atlanta.
Atlanta MEC is made possible through a grant from the JPMorgan Chase Foundation and additional support from UPS and Partnership Gwinnett.
