State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota will be offering an export financing seminar in conjunction with the Sarasota County and Bradenton-area Economic Development corporations.
The half-day seminar will offer exporters basic tools to understand how to finance their exports, including letters of credit as financial and banking instruments, mitigating export risk with commercial credit and political risk insurance, and state and federal government lending programs available, according to organizers.
The seminar is designed to put exporters on the road to becoming experts at financing their products overseas to increase revenues and become more competitive in the international marketplace.
The $49 session is planed for Aug. 25 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will take place at the SCF Lakewood Ranch campus, located at 7131 Professional Pkwy. E.
