A recent article in the Idaho Business Review based on a new report from Dun & Bradstreet and American Express stated that about 4 percent of Idaho’s middle-market companies (firms generating between $10 million and $1 billion) are exporting compared to about 5% nationwide. The report said Idaho has 546 middle-market firms, and 21 of them are engaged in exporting activities.

Idaho companies interested in accelerating their export efforts have done so through the Idaho Export Excellence Program hosted by the state’s District Export Council (DEC). Companies such as Rekluse, Litehouse, Klim, MetaGeek, High Country Fusion, Kingston Fresh and more have used Export Excellence to develop a more proactive method of targeting profitable export markets.
Export Excellence helps companies develop a proactive approach to tapping the 6.5 Billion consumers with 70% of the world’s purchasing power who live outside the USA. During a focused 3-month effort, each company works with a Boise State International Business Student and a DEC Coach to create an action plan for accelerating your most profitable export opportunities.
