MBDA Export Service for Minority-Owned Enterprise

California Center is partnering with CalAsian Chamber of Commerce to assist the U.S. Department of Commerce/Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) to foster the growth and global competitiveness of U.S. businesses that are minority-owned. The main goal is to help boost economic vitality and exports from the U.S.  There are also a lot of advantages to small and minority business owners who do not export, like grant opportunities, access to capital, etc.

When you join the MBDA Export Center as a client, you will enjoy free consulting services such as:

•          Leading Workshops with country and industry experts

•          High-end webinar training for export credit insurance, export shipping, export financing, and more

•          Customized industry and global market research

•          A series of international trade missions specifically for minority-owned firms


In addition, you will get a free corporate membership valued at $2,500 with the CalAsian Chamber of Commerce who houses the MBDA export center in Sacramento.
