MITA Webinar: Resources for Exporting and Importing: the Government is Really Here to Help

Presented by:  Madison International Trade Association (MITA)
Location:  Webinar Time: 1:00pm - 2:30pm

Join this MITA Webinar to learn how to expand your global markets by using financial programs from EXIM and SBA, hear first-hand success stories from Carma Labs using a variety of resources!

If you could find a key that would virtually open doors to new foreign markets, would you use it? If it was right here in Wisconsin would you want to know more? Would you still listen if it was a government program?

Keys like this really do exist, and Carma Labs (Carmex) will tell you all about it. A first- hand success story about the programs that helped an experienced exporting company like Carma Labs expand its global markets through use of the ExportTech.

In addition, hear success stories of companies which use financial programs from Export-Import Bank (EXIM) and the Small Business Development Administration (SBA). The SBA offers a range of loan guarantees which provide lenders (for their export customers) with up to a 90 percent guaranty on export loans; one in as little as 36 hours. Ex-Im Bank supports and promotes exports of U.S. goods and services through a variety of programs including an Export Credit Insurance program, a Loan and Guarantee program and a Working Capital program.

It may sound too good to be true, but you will discover the keys to success are waiting for you at this resource packed MITA meeting on September 15.
