Sponsored by TD Bank, and in partnership with the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Long Island Export Assistance Center and Center for International Financial Services and Markets of Hofstra University’s Frank G. Zarb School of Business, an international export breakfast seminar entitled, “Financial Resources for Going Global: Show me the Money,” will be held on Tuesday, April 1, 2014 from 8- 11 a.m. at the Hofstra University Club.
Admission is $50. Registration is available online.
The seminar is the second event in a series of international export breakfast seminars that began last year when the U.S. Commercial Service, the trade promotion arm of the U.S. Department of Commerce, in partnership with the Zarb School of Business co-hosted the breakfast to increase awareness about exporting, particularly among small and medium-sized businesses.
Mr. Charles Dugan of TD Bank with his broad expertise on financing along with Ms. Susan Axelrod, founder of Love & Quiches Gourmet in Freeport, Long Island, will participate in the event. A panel of experts from the banking and finance industries, and the U.S. Commerce Department will also be featured at the seminar. The event will showcase a variety of private and public resources to help companies export internationally and provide a platform for micro-, small- and medium-sized enterprises to network, leverage their business contacts and develop professional relationships among the Long Island business community.
The U.S. Commercial Service collaborates with Hofstra University to provide counseling on recruitment of international students, as well as access to educational trade missions and catalog shows in South America, Asia, Europe and Africa. Through innovative public-private partnerships, the U.S. Commercial Service communicates with U.S. businesses about global opportunities and delivers valuable information to help them grow internationally.
