Opportunity for Small Businesses

The Minnesota Trade Office has funds available to help eligible small businesses begin exporting or increase their exports, through a grant with the U.S. Small Business Administration.

Eligible small businesses may apply for reimbursement of up to $5000 for certain export development activities, such as:

  • Mission fees for participation in foreign trade missions
  • Space rental for trade show exhibitions
  • Services offered by the U.S. Commercial Service such as Gold Key Service
  • Design of international marketing products or campaigns
  • Translation of websites into foreign languages

Funds are limited, and activities must be completed by September 1, 2012. For questions, please contact Jennifer Kocs at 651-259-7488 or Jennifer.Kocs-at-state.mn.us. (replace -at- with @)
