Webinar: Take Your Business Global with Help from the SBA

Thursday, March 19, 2020 - 11:00am to 12:00pm

Are you interested reaching the global marketplace? Did you know U.S. exporters are more financially stable and expand faster?

About the Webinar:

Please join the Small Business Administration (SBA), in collaboration with the National Women’s Business Council, in celebration of both Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day.

SBA will showcase how women-owned businesses have grown their revenues by selling overseas. By joining this Webinar, you’ll learn how SBA can help you participate in the $45 trillion global trade economy.

Women-owned businesses are driving economic growth in the United States. They represent 42% of all businesses — nearly 13 million — employing 9.4 million workers and generating revenue of $1.9 trillion. Over the past five years, the annual growth rate in the number of women-owned firms has been more than double that of all businesses.

In this session you will:

• Meet Lisa Cobb, Precise Energy Products, and learn what led her company into the international arena and how SBA helped her to succeed.

• Learn from Nina C. Roque, Executive Director of the National Women's Business Council about the unique issues faced by women exporters and the creative solutions they are using to find success.

• Hear about SBA’s extensive network of counselors and training resources.

• Discover how SBA’s export finance programs can help your business grow.

• Learn from Mindy Fryer, Director of Contracts and Grants at the Texas Department of Agriculture about grant opportunities available to you through the State Trade Expansion Program.

• Find out how SBA works to promote women’s small business interests through U.S. trade policy.

This is a can’t miss opportunity to tap into SBA’s export programs and services and go global. Sales opportunities in new markets are waiting for you!
