Kentucky’s two largest cities are looking to help businesses expand their markets.
“Part of this initiative is to physically reach out to companies, almost sort of hold their hand and say this is how you export,” says Louisville mayor's spokesman Chris Poynter. “It will have many components. We will be connecting companies to foreign buyers, we’ll be connecting companies to foreign export finance program,” he says.
The export imitative is coming from Louisville’s Innovation Delivery Team, which is funded with a grant from Bloomberg Philanthropies.
