The webinar will provide guidance on program eligibility and completion of the application, and will also discuss specific elements that are critical for successful applicants. The webinar will also provide tips on assessing export readiness and planning international marketing activities in support of the STEP application.
Those applicants who have demonstrated a strong commitment to exporting with a well-planned export strategy will have the best likelihood of success!
