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).
• Ex-Im Bank provides working capital guarantees (pre-export financing); export credit insurance; and loan guarantees and direct loans (buyer financing). No transaction is too large or too small. On average, more than 85% of Ex-Im 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.
