Is Financing Part of Your Export Strategy?
If financing is not part of your export strategy, you could be missing out on important sales, or you may be exposing your company to unnecessary risks.
Do not miss this opportunity to receive the latest information on financing programs available with U.S. government backing from the Export Import Bank of the United States (EXIM) and the Small Business Administration (SBA).
EXIM Bank provides working capital guaranties (pre-export financing); export credit insurance; and loan guaranties and direct loans (buyer financing). No transaction is too large or too small. On average, more than 85% of EXIM Bank's transactions directly benefit U.S. small businesses.
Also, come hear what export assistance is available from the U.S. Commercial Service and the Ohio SBDC Export Assistance Network.
The U.S. Commercial Service helps U.S. companies export goods and services, resolve market barriers and promotes foreign investment into the United States.
The U.S. Small Business Administration's Export Express, International Trade Loan and Export Working Capital Program (EWCP) are designed to help small business exporters. SBA provides participating lenders with up to 90% guaranty on amounts up to $5 million to facilitate the small business loan and or line of credit.
