The STEP program enables the State of Missouri to augment participation in its Missouri State Trade & Export Promotion = Unlimited Possibilities (MO STEP=UP) program, which has served as a valuable tool to Missouri’s trade efforts and outreach through one-stop-shopping for Missouri small businesses wishing to take part. Additionally, the MO STEP-UP BRIC(K) initiative offers funding considerations for markets in Brazil, Russia, India, China, and Korea in an effort to capitalize on small business growth in these areas. In addition to the STEP=UP activities, Missouri will also hold Governor-led trade missions to 9 international locations in Asia and Europe.
