About this Event

Export University 101 – This half-day event exposes attendees to basic concepts in several areas of exporting, including Marketing, Legal, Finance, Logistics, Information Technology, and Cultural Issues. The course provides a broad overview of these topics and gives the new-to-exporting attendee exposure to fundamental topics they will encounter when selling in foreign markets.

This Export University session is part of Hawaii’s State Trade Expansion Program, also known as HiSTEP, designed to assist small businesses in Hawaii with growing their export business in markets around the world.

The HiSTEP program has three key components that you will learn about in the seminar:
