OPIC announces 2014 Expanding Horizons small business workshop schedule

February 07, 2014

OPIC will continue its popular Expanding Horizons series for small businesses in 2014, with four events around the country. These workshops and seminars help educate small businesses about the benefits of expanding into emerging markets, and the tools available from OPIC and other U.S. Government agencies that can support them.

Expanding Horizons workshops are day-long events featuring presentations by OPIC, the U.S. Small Business Administration, the U.S. Trade and Development Agency, the U.S. Department of Commerce, including the U.S. Commercial Service and the Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA), and the Export-Import Bank of the U.S., as well as one-on-one meetings with OPIC representatives.  Seminars are half-day events undertaken in cooperation with a local partner organization.

The 2014 Expanding Horizons schedule includes:

Minneapolis, MN - April 2

Phoenix, AZ - May 22

Orlando, FL – June 26

Trenton, NJ – TBD

OPIC launched Expanding Horizons in 2006 as a way of reaching out to the country’s small businesses, which are often the businesses that need the most support expanding into challenging, high-growth markets abroad. These workshops and seminars have educated more than 2,500 small and medium-sized business owners across the United States about OPIC’s finance and political risk insurance products.

In 2013, U.S. small businesses accounted for close to two-thirds of all the new projects to which OPIC committed financing or insurance.
