The Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce hosted the first Go International – B2B Mentoring Event on Wednesday, June 17th at the Jilin Business Center, a member of the Chamber. 

As doing international business can often be challenging for small and mid-sized businesses, this was a great opportunity for SMEs to connect with and get advice from trusted and experienced advisers. 

Keynote speakers Sophia Leaguedi, Ameroc Export Inc., and Larry Kulchawik, Larry Kulchawik Consulting, kick off the event by discussing the importance of making international connections and gaining access foreign markets in today’s global economy. Drawing from their own personal experiences, they discussed dealing with the opportunities and challenges that go with doing business internationally. 

After the speaking portion, attendees participated at exclusive one-on-one mentoring meetings with distinguished experts in attendance. The night ended with a vibrant networking reception.
