Taking Veteran-Owned Businesses into the global Marketplace (registration required)
Wednesday, March 24, 2021
1:30PM - 3:30PM CST

Our U.S. veterans have unique experiences and contact networks that can help facilitate global sales success. Companies engaged in international trade earn higher revenues, employ more, and stay in business longer than those that do not. Join the SBA’s Office of International Trade (OIT) and the Veterans Business Outreach Center (VBOC) at Old Dominion University as we celebrate and learn from the export success of veteran-owned businesses sharing their stories of global market success.

The Webinar will include:

  • Insights from successful veteran-owned small business exporters
  • Strategies for launching or expanding your global sales
  • Information on programs that help veteran businesses enter and expand in global markets. The Veteran Institute for Procurement – VIP INTERNATIONAL and “Vets Go Global”
  • SBA international trade resources available to facilitate global market success, including grant programs to support global expansion
