Business Partner Grabs Nation's Highest Export Accolade
Having your own ideas can lead to great things, but incorporating other people’s ideas can magnify the results a thousandfold. That’s how David Rosen, founder and CEO of Kira Labs, recently won the U.S. President’s “E” Award, the highest honor an American firm can get for significantly increasing American exports.
On the advice of his Florida Small Business Development Center at FAU consultant, he expanded his company’s line of beauty products to enter the European, Russian, Canadian and Asian markets, and he applied for and won the E Award. This recognition is the latest in a long line of accolades, including the Small Business Administration’s 2017 State of Florida and South Florida District Exporter of Year. That same year, a trade group, the National Association of Small Business International Trade Educators, recognized the company as an Outstanding Exporter Honoree
