About Us

Export Delaware in an initiative of the Delaware Department of State. We are the official export resource for Delaware’s small businesses. If you are a new exporter, or want to explore new markets, we can help you get started.

Export Delaware assists Delaware companies that seek to export their products and services. Our experienced staff provides on-site guidance to businesses that are looking to explore export opportunities or to expand their current export activities to new markets.

Some of the most successful exporters are innovative small- and medium-sized businesses (which account for 98 percent of U.S. exporters). Businesses that export have faster-growing sales, create more jobs and are less likely to go out of business than non-exporting establishments.
 

History

In 2014, Export Delaware was charged with expanding the State’s export program to offer more services and reach more businesses throughout the state. Export Advisor, Beth Pomper developed the first ever strategic export plan for the State to determine where Delaware companies will have the most success overseas. Here’s a glimpse of what we’ve accomplished since then:

 

 

The ongoing Strategic Export Planis evaluated on an annual basis. Activities are planned at the time Export Delaware applies for the federal STEP Grant for the upcoming Federal fiscal year (October–September).
