Finding Customers around the World: Announcing SBA’s Export Video Contest

SBA is teaming up with Visa to ask small business owners: “Where will your next customer come from?”

To recognize successful small exporters and increase awareness toward federal assistance for exporters, SBA is sponsoring its Export Video Contest. The contest, presented in partnership with the National Export Initiative and Export.gov, will award monetary prizes to five successful small business exporters representing a variety of industries.
