Kane Small Businesses Invited to Free July 22 ‘How to Export’ Webinar

The Small Business Administration is offering a free webinar this week (Friday, July 22, 2016) on “how to export” goods and services.

The webinar will give you an idea of what is required as a prime candidate for exporting, but it will also test your commitment whether you want to “go it” alone as a small business or get some help from professionals in this field.

“If you’re ready to explore the possibilities and challenges of exporting, the U.S. Small Business Administration will provide the help you need,” the SBA said in a news release. “We will introduce you to several resources including International Trade Centers, and the US Export Assistance Center.

The SBA has professionals that will provide you with information on how the SBA and other public and private organizations can assist you in exporting. Our mission is to provide the help you need to compete in today’s global marketplace.

SBA is committed to bringing our resources to new rural/urban territories that have been overlooked as key components to economic development.
