International Trade Assistance

Help is available to expand your markets outside of the United States.  There is an exciting opportunity with the Wyoming Business Council's State Trade and Export Promotion (STEP).  The program, made available through the Small Business Administration (SBA), is available from Oct. 1, 2017 through Sept. 30, 2018 and will provide opportunities for Wyoming-based companies to learn about exporting, become export-ready, participate in trade missions, and/or receive assistance to attend an international trade show.

The Wyoming SBDC Network international trade experts can provide training, education, and entry to the various resources available to small businesses seeking to expand into the global marketplace.  The international market can be confusing and each country may have different guidelines to follow; we will work with you to find the best tools to reach your goals.

Introduction to Exporting:
The SBA offers a free, 30 minute online video course entitled "Take Your Business Global - An Introduction to Exporting".

This course is  intended to be a guide for small businesses to help determine if exporting, as a business strategy, makes sense and whether the basic ingredients for export readiness are in-place.
