SoCal Health Global Expansion Partnership (SoCal Health GEP)

Learn how to leverage grant funding from California to help grow your business abroad.

Your Southern California U.S. Commercial Service team invites you to register for the next meeting of the SoCal Health Global Expansion Partnership (SoCal Health GEP) on November 3, 2021 from 8:30-9:30am PT.

The session will focus on how you can explore and leverage funding opportunities for exporting through California's State Trade Expansion Program (STEP).

Learn how to use CA STEP funds toward international expansion, and how to submit proposals for STEP-funded activity for the healthcare sector from the CA Governor's Office of Business & Economic Development (GO-Biz). Hear from a SoCal healthcare company, Ampronix, on how they've used STEP funds to grow their international sales.

Please come ready with your questions and ideas on how to boost the SoCal healthcare ecosystem using this great CA State resource!

The SoCal Health Global Expansion Partnership (SoCal Health GEP) is an internationally-focused arena for healthcare industry stakeholders and companies to come together to discuss global opportunities, issues, and challenges, as well as to leverage each other’s expertise, strengths, best practices, and connections. This forum is open to all industry representatives in the Southern California health and life sciences ecosystem.
