Community Conversation: Taking Your Business Global

October 27, 2020, 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM,

The COVID-19 crisis has created recession-like downturns for many businesses.
Prior to COVID-19, markets were at an all-time-high, and businesses were expecting record levels of consumer demand.

How can your business find new markets and new revenue? 

Could your business be eligible for grants and funding to go global? 

This is a must-see opportunity for businesses to increase their revenue and expand to new markets.
