Colorado is one of the most active if not the most active states in the U.S. With its sunny skies, mountains and rivers, it's no surprise that outdoor companies are located here, but getting those goods and wares into international markets can be difficult. To help address that, the Denver Office of Economic Development (OED) and CO Active are hosting a seminar about international trade opportunities in the active lifestyle industry.
The one-hour seminar will be hosted at The Commons on Champa on Feb. 24 at 1 p.m. and will feature insights from Abdul Sesay, an international business development representative with OED. At OED, Sesay led the pilot of Denver's Export Promotion Program. Through his efforts he helped Denver Beer Company begin exporting to Japan.
The seminar will help companies and entrepreneurs identify exporting opportunities. It will help them understand what types of resources for exporting their products are available. It also will discuss trade missions and trade shows.
CO Active was launched with OED funding and support. It's one of Colorado's newest business associations and was launched to focus on networking, supply-chain support and to help expand market exposure for companies manufacturing in Colorado for the outdoor industry and active lifestyles that Coloradans enjoys.
