The National Association of Small Business International Trade Educators (NASBITE) in collaboration with the Wisconsin SBDC Network and trade organizations based in 29 additional US states has launched the new Trade Passport website providing Export Assistance On-Demand: https://www.trade-passport.org/
The website includes an impressive webinar library which is updated regularly by NASBITE covering the following trade topics: Export Fundamentals, Importing, Market Entry & Management, Operations & Supply Chain, Regulatory Compliance, Software/Internet Tools and Trade Finance. The target audience for the website includes new-to-export as well as experienced exporters alike. For individuals who have earned NASBITE’s Certified Global Business Professional (CGBP) accreditation, the webinars count towards the CEU’s required for recertification.
Once registered on the website, individuals may access to up to 20 webinars annually. For unlimited access to the 50+ webinars currently available (and growing), the cost is just $149 annually. In addition, the Trade Passport website also provides direct contact information for those seeking Export Assistance directly from a local trade expert as well as information on additional Trade Resources at the state level and a listing of Local Training events. We encourage you to visit the website and bookmark the home page for future use.
With help from the CARES Act, the Wisconsin SBDC Network will be providing 10 individuals with unlimited access to the Trade Passport website for one year. To qualify, your company must have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic resulting in negative export growth in 2020. Please contact Chad Hoffman of the Wisconsin SBDC Network to learn more:
