UW, Wyoming SBDC Network to Host ‘Lunch and Learn’ Program on Exporting

December 6, 2022

In 2019, Wyoming companies exported more than $1.37 billion in goods to the world. Of the companies that export, 97 percent are small businesses. 

Small-business owners in Wyoming can learn more about exporting during a “Lunch and Learn” program with the Wyoming Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Network’s Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC). Multiple speakers will provide an overview of exporting during an online workshop titled “Six Steps to Exporting” Tuesday, Dec. 13, from noon-1 p.m. To register, go here. Registration is free. 

Speakers are Janean Forsyth Lefevre, Wyoming PTAC program manager; Patty Brewer, U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) export finance manager for Colorado, Montana, Utah and Wyoming; Suzette Nickle, director of U.S. Commercial Service Denver; and Brandon Marshall, Wyoming Business Council services director. 

The Wyoming Business Council, in collaboration with the U.S. SBA, U.S. Commercial Service Denver and the Wyoming SBDC Network, will host a series of six exporting training webinars between January and March 2023. This series will help small businesses evaluate whether exporting might be right for them; help them develop an initial exporting plan; and explain how to access grant funding that may be available in Wyoming to help offset some of the costs of becoming export ready. 

For more information, call Maureen Johnson, marketing, communication and database manager for the Wyoming SBDC Network, at (307) 343-0925 or email

The Wyoming SBDC Network offers business expertise to help Wyoming residents think about, launch, grow, reinvent or exit their business. The Wyoming SBDC Network is hosted by the University of Wyoming with state funds from the Wyoming Business Council and funded, in part, through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. SBA.
