The Illinois Small Business Development Center/Duman Entrepreneurship Center at JVS Chicago Is Teaching Local Businesses How To Export, Offering The Innovative One Day Seminar, The Riddle of the Exporterâ„˘
Online PR News – 02-November-2013 – Chicago, Illinois – Three-quarters of the worldâ€™s purchasing power and almost 95% of its consumers are outside America's borders, according to the Office of the US Trade Representative â€“ but some Chicago small businesses arenâ€™t sure how to reach customers outside of the US.
The Riddle of the Exporterâ„˘ partnering with JVS Chicago plan to change that. The Riddle of the Exporterâ„˘ has been called the most innovative seminar on exporting providing an interactive approach for entrepreneurs.
The Illinois SBDC/Duman Center at JVS Chicago will present â€śThe Riddle of the Exporter,â€ťâ„˘ on Nov. 14 at JVS Chicagoâ€™s 3525 W. Peterson Ave. office in Chicago.
â€śWe try to help small businesses grow,â€ť said Donna Rockin, Director of the Illinois SBDC/Duman Center for Entrepreneurship. â€śIn this case, we are providing training for the intermediate small business, ideally one that has been in operation and is ready for new challenges.â€ť
Elyse Eriksson, former Director of Training at the International Trade Center SBDC in Dallas, Texas, created The Riddle of the Exporterâ„˘ seminar and workbook. â€śThe seminar covers the eight steps that small businesses need to take,â€ť said Eriksson. â€śIt takes the exporting business from the entrepreneurâ€™s viewpoint rather than from governmentâ€™s. Participants engage in the nuts and bolts of export transactions.â€ť
Eriksson trained JVS Chicago seminar presenters Steve Bob and Shelby Parchman, who will conduct the Nov. 14 seminar. The seminar will run from 9 am-4pm. Early bird pricing for the seminar, which lasts until Nov. 7, is $99. Location: JVS Chicago, 3525 W. Peterson, Suite 400, Chicago, IL. Registration: firstname.lastname@example.org or 312-673-3429
