ExporTech Seminar

Monday, March 21, 2016 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm
Norfolk, VA
Norfolk Department of Development

Are you a local company looking for ways to grow your business internationally?

Join us for an information session on ExporTech, a national technical assistance program for firms that are ready for export and EXIM Bank, a government agency that offers special trade finance services for exporters.


ExporTech is a three month export development program that helps local companies develop and implement an international sales strategy. Over three workshop dates, companies will learn about export best practices, international trade finance, intellectual property protection, global marketing and logistics to develop an export strategy. At the conclusion of the program, program participants will implement their strategy with the ExporTech team.

Organizations that support the ExporTech Program including the U.S. Export Assistance Center of Hampton Roads, ODU Business Gateway, Genedge Alliance, Virginia Small Business Development Center and Norfolk Department of Development will be at the meeting and share how they contribute their resources to help companies grow internationally.

In December 2015, five local companies completed Virginia's first ExporTech Program. Hear their stories here and here. At the March 21st CBC, meet the five companies and the ExporTech program organizers.



EXIM Bank, a U.S. federal agency, offers a host of trade finance products to meet your company's specific needs including financing for your foreign partner (Foreign Buyer Financing) and protection against buyer nonpayment (Export Credit Insurance). Learn more about the trade finance products they provide (and don't provide) on their website.
