The WTO-ICC Small Business Champions Initiative has been created by the World Trade Organization and International Chamber of Commerce in order to encourage companies to propose innovative, but practical ideas for mid-market enterprises to engage in more international trade. This initiative was specifically designed to provide a platform for smaller businesses to become aware of their potential global markets and further use this knowledge to gain resources and technology that will help them trade internationally. The WTO-ICC Small Business Champions Initiative is asking for large enterprises and private-sector organizations to design proposals that will help level out the playing field between mid-market and larger, more established companies, as well as highlight various success stories and sharpen international trading skills.
