The Vermont Technology Alliance, in collaboration with the Fédération des chambres de commerce du Québec (FCCQ), has launched a new online business networking and opportunity exchange service for technology companies in Vermont: The COREX Opportunities B2B networking platform – vta.corexb2b.com.
COREX Opportunities is an online tool designed to enable business ties and identify new opportunities north of the border for Vermont technology companies. As a new hub for US and Quebec companies wishing to expand their networks, this new service will facilitate and promote trade between Quebec and U.S. Northeast states, including Vermont. The service will support the growth and development of Vermont’s tech sector through connections with Quebec businesses.
COREX Opportunities promotes contact between northeastern US and Quebec companies, through targeted networking based on their industry sector and their individual profiles and needs. Companies can also use this tool to find new customers, suppliers or potential partners, post requests for proposals or other business opportunities, or ask questions.
In addition to individual inquiries, COREX Opportunities performs an electronic surveillance on the company’s specific industry. Users will automatically receive personalized notifications when a new business opportunity meeting their criteria is posted online.
Through this collaboration, the Vermont Technology Alliance and the FCCQ emphasize the importance of supporting the growth of exporting businesses for economic development. The seven Northeastern US states have exported as much as $5.6 B annually to the province of Quebec. Quebec represents an important trading partner for the Northeastern states, given its geographic proximity, similarities in industrial makeup and compatible business practices, COREX Opportunities is a user friendly tool that will help to connect businesses and facilitate trade between them.Vermont businesses can join COREX through this link: vta.corexb2b.com
