• South Africa is often used as a spring-board to other Sub-Saharan countries.
• This trade show attracts participants from some of the fastest growing economies in the world.
• American firms are viewed favorable for the quality of their products.
Application Deadlines and Details:
The deadline for Africa Health applications is February 15, 2017. For eligible companies, the STEP grant can reimburse a significant portion of your exhibit, travel and accommodation expenses. You will also be eligible to apply for Global NY’s customized Export Market Assistance Service (EMAS).
Global NY offers one-stop shopping to both local businesses that want to export globally – and to foreign businesses looking to invest in New York. One way we’re helping small businesses export their products and services is by connecting them to the State Trade and Expansion Program (STEP). Funding – offered by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) through Empire State Development (ESD) – supports a variety of activities, including participation in foreign trade shows like Africa Health.
Is Your Business Eligible?
To be eligible for a STEP grant, your business must have 500 or fewer employees, have been profitable for the past year, have a product or service to export and meet the standards and mission of the STEP Program. (MWBE firms and businesses classified as NYS strategic industries are encouraged to apply.)
Ineligible businesses include law firms, non-profit organizations, retailers and educational institutions. Companies that act as intermediaries for others or are recruiting foreign investment are also ineligible.
