Applying for the CTA

When applying, determine which sector and location fits your business best and target that specific CTA.

You can apply for a different CTA at a different point in time; past participation does not preclude future participation. Some program alumni have repeated the same program a year or two later to meet more objectives. Other alumni have participated in a second CTA at a later date to reach broader markets.

Selection Process

Participants are chosen in a competitive process. The Trade Commissioner Service and a panel of industry experts review the applications and decide whether applicants are eligible and a good fit for a location.

Selected and rejected applicants will be notified no later than 5-week from the stated deadline. Rejected applicants will receive written feedback on the reason(s) for their rejection.

Examples of Information you need to apply

All information submitted on the application is treated as confidential by the trade commissioners and industry experts making the selection.

Application deadlines

The application deadline for the U.S. programs has been extended to July 12 with the exception of the Boston CTA. The application deadline for the Asia programs are rolling admission with the exception of the joint NYC & Singapore Fintech CTA (also July 12) and the Hong Kong CTA (October 2019).
