ATLANTA METRO EXPORT CHALLENGE

The Atlanta Metro Export Challenge (Atlanta MEC) is a year-long program to assist metro Atlanta companies in their global business development efforts. Since its implementation in 2016, the program has supported more than 120 metro Atlanta businesses with over $600,000 in financial support and counseling. The continued support of our economic development partners and Atlanta’s business community makes this one of the largest economic development initiatives in the region. 

Through the program, selected companies receive a $5,000 reimbursement grant that can be used for expenses related to their international business growth. They also benefit from a tailored mentorship program to assist in the development of global sales plans and go-to-market strategies.  

The 2022 Metro Export Challenge is closed for applications.
