The state of TN's economic development team has a new program to promote exports by small business, with half of the funding available as matching firms to small businesses. These funds can be used for overseas trade shows, sales trips, etc. Matching funds are 1:1, up to $5000 per applicant.
For those involved in marketing and web sites, these funds can be used to translate/ internationalize brochures and web sites so, MAKE SOME CALLS to ANY of your clients that might be able to use these services!!!
Small businesses can apply in early January. For more information, go to http://www.tn.gov/ecd/tntrade/
