XPORT Challenge 2017

Posted By Dale Myska, UPS, Monday, July 31, 2017

We are pleased to announce the launch of the 2017 UPS X-PORT Challenge. The UPS X-PORT Challenge is a promotion designed to support businesses that have international growth aspirations, and to introduce these businesses to UPS and our international capabilities.  Businesses can apply to earn an opportunity to pitch their solutions/products and win up to $10,000 in export shipping credits from UPS. 

 

This is a one of a kind opportunity that only takes a few minutes to apply. The contest is open to companies headquartered in Colorado, Arizona, Utah, New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma.

 

The top 10 applicants will be invited to a one of a kind “Pitch Off” event in Dallas, TX on September 13, 2017 (transportation and lodging provided by UPS).   Each finalist will present their international growth strategy to a designated panel of judges, and educate the judges to why their business is ready for the global marketplace. Three winners will be selected based on their international appeal and execution strategy.

  •  Grand Prize: $10,000 in export shipping from UPS*
  • 2nd Place: $2,500 in export shipping from UPS*
  • 3rd Place: $1,000 in export shipping from UPS*
