[ARCHIVED] Kickoff Workshop for Virginia's Going Global Defense Initiative

10:30 am - 2:00 pm Wednesday, August 14, 2013 at Norfolk Waterside Marriott 235 E Main Street Norfolk, VA

Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) promotes international trade for companies throughout Virginia. The Going Global Defense Initiative from VEDP-International Trade leverages federal funding to mitigate the impact of defense spending cuts on Virginia's economy. Between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014, $1.5 million is available to help Virginia's defense-related companies diversify into new international markets.
Eligible defense-related companies can receive assistance with marketing, strategy, compliance, and matchmaking services to increase international sales. Both new-to-export companies and current exporters will receive training and resources to obtain long term sales in international markets. In this workshop and luncheon you will learn about how your company can access available funds to increase international sales.
