The Michigan Strategic Fund will use STEP funds to build upon the Pure Michigan Export Program (MI-Export) to promote Michigan’s economy and create new jobs through enhanced export activity. The MI-Export program will increase the number of small exporters in Michigan, increase the value and volume of exports, and expand the number of international markets served by Michigan small businesses. Michigan is expecting the strategy to lead to doubled exports in 4 years, from a base of $76 million.
