We are very excited to announce that UPS has officially launched an X-Port Challenge for businesses seeking to take their products / services abroad.
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 their 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.
A designated panel of judges will select 10 finalists to participate at a Pitch-Off event. If selected as a finalist, applicants will pitch the judges on 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

We are trying to get the word out regarding the X-Port challenge to as many people as possible.
