In recent years, the South Carolina Department of Commerce has ramped up efforts to support the small business community, including the strengthening of international trade assistance programs. Last week, the State of South Carolina announced the expansion of its export initiative for in-state businesses through a new program: South Carolina Opportunities for Promoting Exports, or SCOPE.
SCOPE joins the State Trade and Export Promotion (STEP) program as a resource for small businesses looking to amplify their international trade efforts. In 2011, with a grant from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), S.C. Commerce implemented the STEP program. Since that time, 65 participating companies, with an average of 39 employees, have contributed nearly $4.7 million in export sales in South Carolina.Companies interested in participating in either the SCOPE or STEP programs may learn more and apply online. learn more and apply online.
