Event Date and Time:

As more U.S. small businesses participate in the global marketplace, they are facing new questions and challenges. Lack of knowledge about government programs available to support overseas investment, limited access to private sector-capital to pursue opportunities abroad, or concern over political risks in emerging markets can prevent small business from expanding overseas.

The Expanding Horizons workshop will address these concerns and explain the programs and resources provided by the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, the U.S. government agency responsible for supporting private-sector investment in developing countries. This is a unique opportunity to learn about:

  • How expanding overseas can benefit your business at home.

  • U.S. government programs offering assistance to small and medium sized enterprises planning to go global.

  • Political risk insurance and how it can protect your business.

  • Accessing capital for your overseas project.

  • Current opportunities in the renewable energy and clean technology sector.

  • OPIC’s special finance products for small businesses.

OPIC will host its next Expanding Horizon's workshop in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Companies interested in attending may register online at www.opicevents.com.
