Increase your export marketing budget with FundMatch.

Did you know that the average FundMatch participant reports at least 142:1 return on investment? FundMatch doubles your export marketing budget while expanding your reach by providing 50% cost reimbursement on eligible international marketing expenses. Your company can request funds ranging from $2,500 to $300,000 through a yearly application process, based on exporting experience.

Allocation amounts available to FundMatch Participants. The minimum funding request is $2,500, which means that you must spend $5,000 in promotional activities to be reimbursed $2,500 (50%) by WUSATA.

Eligible FundMatch expenses cover a flexible and wide range of export marketing activities. This allows you to tailor your planning to meet specific country goals.
