Greater Portland Inc and our export partners are ready to offer another round of Growing Small Businesses Globally export assistance scholarships. Here’s a link to the application: http://www.greaterportland2020.com/gsbg-scholarship-application.
The goal of this scholarship is to help primarily women, veteran and entrepreneurs of color prepare for international sales. The scholarship covers half the cost of selected trainings and includes a travel stipend.
So far, in 2018 we’ve helped 19 entrepreneurs prepare for international sales with this scholarship. Even if an applicant doesn’t get a training and travel scholarship; we connect them to the region’s export advising network through an export advising passport that introduces them to export focused programs at the SBA, USCS, Business Oregon and SBDC’s Global Trade Center.
We will collect scholarship applications throughout the rest of 2018 and make awards in January 2019.
I’m happy to answer any questions you, or a potential scholarship recipient, has about the Growing Small Businesses Globally program.
