“The State Trade Expansion Program, or STEP, has been essential to Pajarito Powder’s success. As a rare start-up that has been global since inception, Pajarito Powder’s ability to exhibit at the most important international tradeshows has been critical in establishing us as a leading provider of electrocatalyst materials for the hydrogen economy. Without the assistance of the STEP program, it would not have been possible for us to do so.”
