New York Fed to Co-Host Clinic for Small Businesses in Puerto Rico
July 3, 2013

As part of its ongoing efforts to promote economic vitality throughout the Second District, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York will co-host a clinic for small business owners in Puerto Rico on July 10. The clinic will be held in conjunction with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Puerto Rico / Virgin Islands district office of the U.S. Small Business Administration, and the Puerto Rico Small Business and Technology Development Center.

The International Trade for Small Businesses Clinic will provide information and showcase available resources small firms can use to boost exports. Specifically, small business owners can learn about federal and local government assistance programs, as well as programs offered by local nonprofit organizations.  

At the clinic, participants will be able to listen to presentations from representatives from a number of organizations, including the International Trade Administration, U.S. Small Business Administration, U.S. Export-Import Bank, and PR Small Business and Technology Development Center, among others. Each representative will be available for one-on-one information sessions after the panel presentations.

This is the third and final event of a series that began in January with a conference focusing on small business financing in Puerto Rico. The second event, which took place in April, provided insight on government procurement opportunities.
