Vancouver Export Resources Forum November 1

The Vancouver Export Resources Forum will bring together the small business and trade communities for a morning of discussion and networking with Washington’s local, state, and federal resource partners.

Learn from Washington State Department of Commerce how to apply for the Small Business Association (SBA) STEP Grant Export Voucher Program which offers qualified companies, new to exporting, or expanding into new export markets, up to $5,000 in reimbursements for export-related expenses. More than 580 Washington state small business exporters have benefited from about $5.1 million in STEP Grant funded support to achieve over $512 million in new export sales and creating a return on investment of about 100:1.

 

There is huge untapped potential for Washington’s small businesses to sell American-made goods and services abroad. Hear from local leaders. Connect with local resources. Learn how to overcome challenges and take advantage of opportunities for small businesses just like you to grow your export potential.
