SYNOPSIS: A cross-border panel discussion featuring entrepreneurs and experts in exporting and diversity procurement in the U.S. market, will talk about how investing in these cross-border relationships can help you thrive as both a business woman and an exporter. The focus of the discussion will be on building relationships to expand your business outside of Canada, through participation in trade missions. Trade missions give Canadian women-owned businesses access to U.S.- based business networks to explore procurement and partnership opportunities, contacts with businesses in regional markets and relevant sector specific resources for women in business in the U.S. Trade missions empower relationship building, which is at the heart of long-term cross-border business building.
