At the TCA, we are committed to the 2030 United Nations Sustainable Development Agenda. As part of the SDG No. 17, Partnership for the Goals. Thus, we have established a platform for building public-private-partnerships (PPPs) in order to include all trade actors in our vision of promoting inclusive economic growth through trade and investment based on sustainable practices.
We connect and facilitate dialogue as well as capacity building opportunities between governments (foreign-local-nationwide), local and international public organizations, and local and international private institutions (companies, NGOs, etc), producers, small businesses, and women and minority-owned companies as well as startups.
Because of the diverse nature of services provided by the public sector, we are committed to building a community of support in providing opportunities to accelerate trade and international investment to our customers. Connecting the dots between the public and private sector, including NGOs, think tanks, academia, data, technology, etc. is the most effective path to achieve this goal.
Through establishing public-private partnerships, we want to promote a more accessible trade ecosystem. We are aware of the challenges that many small businesses need to overcome in order to promote their products and services. At the TCA we want to be able to provide a comprehensive and approachable platform through bridging the gaps between sectors and build networks of support.
Examples of Private-Public-Partnerships are the trade missions, trade forums, business discussions, investment opportunities panels, promoting public initiatives focused on trade, projects focused on trade, international development, and capacity building.
Trade Referal Matching Services
Are you a buyer looking for new inventory? Or perhaps a seller looking for new clients or markets? We help to establish reliable, cost-effective supply chains by pairing buyers and sellers, maximizing profitability for both parties.
As entrepreneurs doing international business across the Americas, we have a thorough understanding of the challenges of accessing new markets. With that in mind, we have created a dedicated Business Opportunity Referral Service where we connect suppliers and buyers on a one-on-one basis across the Americas. After suppliers provide specific information about their goods and services offered, TCA identifies potential business partners with related needs looking for suppliers. TCA makes a direct connection and introduction for the two businesses. TCA is paid for this service in the form of a commission. This service is subject to the terms and conditions outlined in independently tailored commission agreements.
Via a thorough examination of potential target markets for your product, the TCA will develop a strategic plan to meet your needs with ease and efficiency. Once you are ready to promote and market your products or services, internationally, we will identify potential suppliers/customers and help establish a reliable supply chain for your offer and or demand. We will make sure to provide a personalized reference guide to find a profitable market for your business.
We offer bi-monthly, hour-long virtual educational seminars on a variety of topics for up to 500 attendees, with preference given to members. Our guest speakers and experienced partners speak on subjects such as navigating business culture in different nations, market entry strategies, writing a strategic plan, and leadership development. We also offer customized seminars upon request.
