About this Event
With global market opportunities beginning to re-emerge, RISCPA/RI Business Forum, Rhode Island Manufacturers Association (RIMA) and U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) are teaming up to help Rhode Island business owners understand available SBA resources, financing and programs.
SBA’s Office of International Trade has resources for companies selling overseas, as well as domestic focused companies that are part of a global supply chain. The webinar will highlight the Debt Relief component of the CARES Act and implications for SBA export finance products and other resources available to Rhode Island manufacturers and supply chain partners. Q&A immediately following will give attendees an opportunity to interact with SBA leadership and ask questions on programs available. Register today- we expect a capacity crowd.
As COVID-19 continues to challenge the global supply chain, companies need resources and capital to grow; this event is open to all Rhode Island business owners and advisors.
