95% of the world’s consumers are outside of the U.S., yet many firms, especially small businesses, are focused solely on the domestic market.  This 1-hour program will introduce key exporting topics as described by successful Midwestern small business owners and U.S. government international trade experts.  All businesses are welcome, including those who may not have considered exporting or who may not know where to start.



Topics Will Include:


  • Why your business should export
  • What financial support is available to you
  • How the USG can help you navigate the process
  • What programs are focused specifically on growing women/minority-owned business exports
