UPS xport challenge


UPS is conducting multiple** UPS X-PORT Challenges in 2016, competitive events that help local businesses connect to the world. This exclusive UPS competition gives your business the chance to showcase your product(s) and gain access to tools and resources you need to grow globally.

To request an application for this unique opportunity, simply click the button below and fill out the fields. If your business is eligible for one of the local 2016 UPS X-PORT Challenge events, a UPS representative for your designated district will contact you to get more information about your business, your product(s) and why you believe it has global appeal.

Applications will be entered into the UPS X-Port Challenge event for a UPS district based on the principle business address for the applicant. Each application will be carefully reviewed by a panel of judges from the business community, so don’t forget the details.

The designated judging panel will select the top 10 finalists in your area to participate at a Pitch-Off event. If selected as a finalist, you’ll pitch the judges on why your business is ready for the global marketplace. Three winners will be selected based on their international appeal and execution strategy.
