Sixty-seven percent of the world's business activity is outside of the U.S., yet we only export some five percent of what we manufacture. That creates a huge opportunity for small businesses to grow their markets exponentially by exporting.
Does your product have potential in an overseas market? Small businesses can compete with larger companies in the global marketplace. A little extra effort is necessary to bring your product to foreign markets, but there is plenty of support available to help small businesses tackle this huge, growing market.
In addition to training sessions provided by Austin's International Business Institute at Austin Community College, the Small Business Administration, the US Department of Commerce Export Assistance Centers, and the Austin Chamber of Commerce's International Business Coalition, are but a few off the resources available.
