The Commonwealth of Kentucky will use STEP award funds to provide access to events, seminars, training, and counseling for ESBCs.  Companies will have the opportunity to participate in trade missions, foreign market sales visits, and international trade shows. In addition, Kentucky will connect ESBCs to matchmaking resources and international market research services. STEP funds will also be available to cover fees for compliance, shipments to international business events, and translation services.
