MHTA – The application deadline is November 30 for the winter session of the Export by Design program. The two-day event by the Minnesota Trade Office is focused on helping small businesses build a concise, customized export and marketing strategy.
Minnesota trade leaders say a well designed export plan can help companies expand their sales and profits. A survey revealed 60% of small businesses derive 20% of their annual earnings from exports. The targeted plans also help companies establish a more stable customer base resulting in smoother business cycles.
The winter sessions will be held January 17 and February 27. You can complete an online application by visiting the Trade Office website. As a bonus, all registered companies will receive a 20% discount on attendance at all Minnesota Trade Office education programs for one year. A spring session will be held in St. Cloud.
