Advancements in information technology and logistics allow most any business access to the global market place. If you have a Website, global consumers are checking you out. Interestingly, many U.S. businesses ignore international inquiries because of their perception of risk. Don’t ignore opportunity.
You don’t need to be an expert in trade. Let our SBDC International Trade Center be your expert. We can support you in a variety of ways such as: walking you through a transaction, identifying opportunities, investigating trade financing options or resolving a particular trade issue.
We work as a team with our USEAC partner organizations to make sure you benefit from all of our state and federal resources.
