Wisconsin takes export seminars on the road

October 16, 2017 – Wisconsin is offering export funding seminars through November 9th in seven cities to help small to medium-sized exporters (SMEs) learn more about expanding their exports efforts.


“Two barriers often cited by Wisconsin companies thinking about entering new international markets are complexity and cost,” said Katy Sinnott, vice president of international business development for the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC). “This seminar will dispel misconceptions about both and will have a particular emphasis on the many sources of funding available to help companies achieve their strategic exporting goals.”

The seminars are sponsored by WEDC; the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP); and the US Small Business Administration (SBA). Experts from all three sponsors will join representatives from the Wisconsin Center for Manufacturing and Productivity, the US Export-Import Bank and the Wisconsin Small Business Development Centers providing information and answering questions from businesses. In addition, representatives from local economic development and business and trade organizations, as well as some University of Wisconsin campuses, will participate in the events.

Sessions are planned in Hudson, Superior, La Crosse, Madison, Milwaukee, Wausau and Appleton. To learn more and register, visit join.inwisconsin.com/faroadshow.
