Companies of all sizes can benefit from exporting their products to markets outside of the United States. Selling to international markets opens your business to the 96% of the world’s consumers located in other countries. These new markets and customers also diversify your customer base and improve your company’s ability to weather changes and seasonal variability in the domestic market.

Trade + Export Services
When American companies sell internationally they benefit from the reputation of the U.S. for innovation, quality and honest business practices.


The Oklahoma STEP Fund makes matching-fund grants to assist small Oklahoma businesses with starting or growing their exports. Funds help small companies attend major international business events to gain new business-to-business relationships and expand sales to customers outside of the United States. 

Trade Shows

The agency attends and hosts booths at trade shows to provide opportunities for Oklahoma exporters to meet international buyers, distributors or representatives. By organizing trade missions and international trade shows, the Global Team reduces the cost to exhibit for Oklahoma companies and provides valuable business-to-business matchmaking opportunities.

Market Research
