You don't hear a lot about it, but New Hampshire has a thriving export economy.
According to the NH Office of International Commerce, 2,625 New Hampshire companies export over $4 Billion of goods to 180 countries. 
International markets can be very profitable for local manufacturers, but it takes money to get a product from a factory in the Granite State to a distributor or end user across the globe. Which is where UPS comes in.
As a global shipping leader, UPS knows first-hand the costs and challenges small business owners face getting their products to international destinations and they've put together a contest called the UPS X-Port Challenge to help you get your products to a global market.
The pitch-off event is Thursday, October 26th from 2:30 PM - 5:30 PM at the Manchester Country Club.
The event is free and is a great opportunity to network and support other local businesses.
For more information/RSVP please visit the event page on Eventbrite.com
To learn about the challenge, including registration and contest rules, please visit UPS at global.ups.com
