TradeStart is an Australian Government initiative that delivers Austrade services through local public sector and industry organisations throughout Australia.
TradeStart Partners employ advisers who are well-versed in the needs of exporters and skilled in matters of international trade. These TradeStart Advisers have access to Austrade’s worldwide resources and systems.
The prime objective of the TradeStart program is to assist small and medium sized enterprises in their international business endeavours. The program flexibly addresses the needs of individual businesses drawing on the combined resources of Austrade and the TradeStart Partner. The program contains elements of coaching and action learning; with the goal being to assist each business to achieve long-term success in international business.
The TradeStart Program:
- Promotes exporting, international business and the Australian Government’s trade agenda.
- Works co-operatively with other relevant agencies to maximise the international business success of TradeStart clients.
- Represents Austrade and provides access to the full range of its services for both existing and potential Austrade clients.
