MetroConnect, presented by JPMorgan Chase, is the flagship initiative of World Trade Center San Diego and a comprehensive export support program designed to help San Diego companies accelerate their global growth. Fifteen San Diego companies were chosen to participate in the 2017 – 2018 program, representing a variety of sectors including life sciences, maritime, craft brewing and cleantech. These companies received services to help them increase international sales, including a $10,000 grant.
The MetroConnect Grand Prize PitchFest is inviting a number of these companies back to compete for an additional $35,000 in funding towards their international expansion strategies. The catch? These companies will be looking to YOU, the attendee, to judge and award the extra cash.
