Expanding Sales Internationally:

Learn from experts how to access export financing.

If you want to grow your company’s sales and are looking to export, we want to help you! Please attend this workshop to learn how companies of all sizes can use U.S. government financing to boost international sales of products and services. The U.S. Export-Import Bank provides financing, enables companies to sell to foreign companies on credit, and protects against foreign buyer non-payment.

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) can help your company connect with a lender to safely structure your export financing, giving your firm an added edge. SBA programs also help U.S. exporters get loans for their working capital and other business needs.
