Who had Global Success from ND in 2022?

We want to recognize companies that have made strides in global business from North Dakota in 2022. While we know it is not in your nature to brag, here is your chance to recognize or be recognized for all the efforts in international business (and we know it takes effort!). Whether it’s supporting companies on their journey to finding international business success, you are the company selling hard and making an impact overseas, or maybe 2022 was your first time going global, we want to hear about it! There are so many untold stories across our proud and ingenious but sometimes shy state.

As the North Dakota Trade Office, we want to help your business grow, and sometimes that is name recognition to a new or even international audience. Awards and recognition can help showcase the work you have done and spark ideas for potential partners.

Please take a few moments to tell us about your international success in 2022. Who knows, you might just be the next Global Business Award winner.
