The Detroit, MI office of e-commerce service provider Virtual Global Consultant Group (VGC) contacted the U.S. Commercial Service (CS) for assistance building e-commerce service sales in Ghana.

CS East Michigan recommended VGC participate in the ExporTech™ program to develop a strategic plan to build export sales, coached them during the program, introduced VGC to DEC members for counseling, and scheduled calls with colleagues at the U.S. Embassy in Ghana to plan next steps. As part of their strategy, VGC utilized the CS International Partner Search service. As a direct result of IPS results and a VGC presentation to the Association of Ghana Industries arranged by CS Ghana, VGC established a key partnership in Ghana, acquired new clients, increased their name recognition in Ghana and adjacent African countries, and added new employees in the United States.
