Julie Monahan is the outreach and communication manager at the Washington State Department of Commerce, responsible for promoting the SBA’s export promotion program, STEP. Julie is a former business journalist with special expertise in small business development and marketing.
We are pleased to have Julie as a member of our panel on How to Increase Your Bottom Line with Export at our fall show the morning of September 11th. Julie will be joining representatives from the Port of Seattle, the Trade Development Alliance of Greater Seattle, and the U.S. Office of Textiles and Apparel to discuss the resources available to your business to get started in exporting.
Some of the questions Julie will be answering are:
- What businesses are eligible for the STEP program?
- What you can use a STEP export voucher for?
- How have other companies used the voucher to support their export activities?
- How does the STEP program help small businesses who want to start exporting?
We appreciate the support of the Washington State Department of Commerce for sending Julie to be a part of our panel. We look forward to seeing you at the show, and for more information on how the WA Dept. of Commerce supports small business you can find a link to their website on our Resources page.
