Are you thinking about taking your business international?

Would you be BETTER PREPARED if you could learn about what exporting involves before you committed?

Wouldn’t it be great if there were an exporting overview program specifically designed for owners and managers of small- and medium-sized businesses looking to export a product or service overseas?

Metro Richmond Exports Initiative (MREI) is excited to announce Exporting 101!
In partnership with the Community College Workforce Alliance (CCWA), Exporting 101 is an interactive instructor-led seminar specifically designed to provide business owners/managers with a high-level understanding of what it takes to export a product or service.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Pinpoint the best international markets for your products or services
  • Clear customs
  • Avoid legal and financial pitfalls
  • Manage terms of payment and currency fluctuations
  • Use export assistance programs available to Virginia-based companies

Exporting 101 sessions are collaborative and participatory, so you will learn from the material, as well as from your classmates. Seminars will be offered twice a year and the cost of Exporting 101 is $269. MREI does offer a limited number of $200 reimbursement scholarships for qualified businesses, making the final cost only $69.

The next seminar will be held in March 2018, with the exact time and date to be determined based on participant’s schedules.

To register for the course, first go here to apply for a reimbursement scholarship. An MREI team member will then follow up to schedule the dates of the course based on your availability.
