Hi Ignatius Flemister,
Unfortunately, ACP does not provide cohorts or internships. We encourage every veteran to sign up for an ACP mentorship (https://www.acp-usa.org/mentoring-program/veteran-application). I can't guarantee that we will have a mentor directly related to the niche area you are looking for, but could be helpful in overall small business guidance and how to best research import/export policies and regulations.
Below are a few resources I think you might find helpful, some of which include cohorts and programming:
The Institute for Veterans & Military Families provides many different entrepreneurship programs that might be of benefit/interest to you: https://ivmf.syracuse.edu/programs/entrepreneurship/getting-started/
National Veteran Business Development Council (https://nvbdc.org/), that includes resources and webinars such as a recent one titled Expanding Global Opportunities for Veteran-Owned Businesses (https://grow.exim.gov/nvbdc-exim-webinar-on-demand).
Veterans Business Outreach Center (VBOC) Program that has a wealth of information and locations across the country (https://www.sba.gov/local-assistance/resource-partners/veterans-business-outreach-center-vboc-program).
I hope this is helpful and thank you for your service!
