I’m pleased to announce the winner of a video competition for small businesses that have used exporting to increase their sales and create jobs.
Exporting is a crucial driving force in building on America’s economic growth. This year alone, the U.S. had several record-breaking months of exports, helping contribute to the President’s goal of doubling U.S. exports and supporting 2 million jobs under the National Export Initiative.
For this competition, we put out a call for businesses to make an educational video of three minutes or less, highlighting how they found success through exporting. In the videos, they show the advantages of exporting as a growth strategy, and they raise awareness about government tools – such as SBA’s exporting loans and nationwide counselors – which can help a small business take advantage of new markets abroad.
Videos were submitted in five categories (manufacturing, consumer products, professional services, technology, and agribusiness) and from the finalists in each category, I’m pleased to announce that the winner was SteelMaster, which is based in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
Here is their video which features the company’s International Business Development Manager.
