Waterjet systems manufacturer Jet Edge, Inc. is co-sponsoring a free exporting seminar, “Exporting 101,” noon-4:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 11 at St. Michael City Center, in St. Michael, Minn.
Exporting is not just for big companies anymore. In fact, more than 97% of exporters are small to medium-sized businesses. Learn how your business can tap into the growing global marketplace during this informative exporting seminar hosted by the City of St. Michael Economic Development Authority.
During Exporting 101, participants will gain valuable insight into the many trade resources available to them through the federal and state government, including education and trade counseling, market intelligence and research, trade missions and trade shows, international business partner matching services, the Featured U.S. Exporter (FUSE) program, and trade advocacy with foreign governments. They will learn the basic requirements for exporting, where to go for assistance, how to take advantage of free trade agreements, how to secure financing for exports and mitigate credit risk, and much more.
Speakers include Andrea Staebler Berton, international trade specialist with the U.S. Commercial Service; Mary Jo Stangl, international education advisor with the Minnesota Trade Office; Leslie A. Bergland, principal with Trade Acceptance Group, Ltd.; and David Anderson, Jet Edge’s international sales manager and member of the Minnesota District Export Council.
