About this event

There are limited amount of tickets available. Please be mindful if you are signing up to attend.

Please join the Division of Minority and Women Owned Business at the U.S. Export-Import Bank (EXIM) for a conversation on exporting. If you are a startup-up, or an established business, don’t miss this opportunity to learn about resources and programs that are available to help U.S. Businesses to export. Bring your questions so they can be answered during the event.

EXIM has a dedicated group of specialists who work with minority, women, veteran and disable-owned businesses (MWOBs) to help them access EXIM financing. The MWOB group seeks to engage minority- and women-owned businesses that are interested in exporting their goods and services, educate them regarding the availability of EXIM financing, and increase the total amount of financing to support exports from these businesses.

This meeting will focus on

  • Introduction to U.S. Export-Import Bank (EXIM)
  • What is Export Credit Insurance and Working Capital
  • What you need to understand before you start export goods and service
  • The advantages and disadvantages of exporting
  • Tools and resources available to help start your exporting journey

Coming away from this meeting you’ll have a better understanding of how to start exporting whether it is right for your business, the advantages and disadvantages and the next steps to take to make it a reality.

Who can attend?

Anyone can attend. Our series of meetings are open to any businesses from pre-start up and start-up businesses or of minority status such as women-owned, veterans-owned, Asian-American, African-American, and other various backgrounds.
