Learn how Idaho Commerce can help you expand your international sales and connections in Mexico as well as other countries. Since 2011, Idaho Commerce has been a fortunate recipient of STEP Grant funding from the US Small Business Administration. Funds are used to organize a shared Idaho Pavilion at international industry trade shows as well as for your own individual projects. These funds provide assistance for booth space rental, design, and construction as well as covering some travel expense.
