Description:

Do you know 96 percent of consumers live outside of United States? You are missing a lot of sales opportunities, if you are not exporting. Are you thinking about starting exporting, but don’t know where to start? Come join this one and half hour program, which will give you the basic understanding of how exporting works.

Learning objective:

    • Gain basic knowledge about the export process, INCOTERM, payment and much more
    • Learn how to look for clients in the global market.
    • Determine if your business is ready for exporting and/ or have your mindset prepared.

A few things to think about:

  • In 2005-09, U.S. small and midsized manufacturers that exported grew by 37 percent, while non-exporting companies saw a seven percent decrease in growth.
  • In 2016, worldwide retail e-commerce sales totaled $1.86 trillion, and they’re projected to grow to $4.48 trillion by 2021.
  • Smaller size can be synonymous with global scale. Companies no longer need to scale to trade; they need to trade to scale.
