Lena, WI – April 12, 2017
Roving Blue Inc., a Wisconsin manufacturer of advanced water purification systems, announces that it has been awarded a $25,000 International Market Access Grant or “IMAG” Grant by the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, or WEDC. The WEDC’s mission is to advance and maximize opportunities in Wisconsin for businesses, communities and people to thrive in a globally competitive environment.
“This is no freebie”, said Marianna “Yana” DeMyer, Roving Blue’s CEO; upon hearing the news. “We had to work hard just to qualify for it, and now we will have to work even harder to fulfill the expectations that come with it. We are so grateful to the WEDC for this assistance. This grant will super-charge our efforts to expose our product lines to the world. “
“Roving Blue is a great example of how Wisconsin companies can utilize WEDC’s international programs to help boost their exporting efforts,” said Katy Sinnott, WEDC’s Vice President of International Business Development. “Roving Blue has taken part in two WEDC trade ventures and has successfully completed our ExporTech training program, and we believe the IMAG grant will be a key part of the company’s ongoing export strategy.”
While the overall goal is to create jobs for Wisconsin, the near-term use of funds will be to make it easier for foreign customers to learn about Roving Blue products, to understand the technology, pricing and distribution policies, online and in print, in their native languages.
