Expanding Horizons Workshop - Philadelphia, PAAs minority and women-owned small businesses grow by participating in the global marketplace, they face unique challenges. Lack of knowledge about government programs available to support overseas investment, the scarcity of private sector capital to pursue opportunities abroad, or concern over political risks in emerging markets can prevent minority and women-owned businesses from expanding overseas.

The Expanding Horizons Workshop will address these concerns by providing participants with an understanding of the programs and resources provided by the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, which is the U.S. government agency responsible for supporting private sector investment in developing countries. This is a unique opportunity to learn about: 

  • The challenges and opportunities of overseas investment

  • U.S. government programs offering assistance to minority and women-owned businesses planning to go global

  • Political risk insurance and how it can protect your business

  • Accessing capital for your overseas project

  • Special opportunities in the renewable energy and clean technology sector

  • OPIC's special products for small businesses
