Export 101

95% of the world’s consumers are outside of the U.S. Have you thought about a strategy to reach them? Join the Virginia SBDC to learn about what’s involved with taking your business global. This discussion will focus on:
• What is an exportable product or service?
• Is my business export ready?
• First steps for going global and the resource landscape in Virginia to get you “over there”!
There are a number of resources for existing businesses to tap into that make going global easier than you’d think. However, to do international business it almost always requires that you are in business with existing customers in the U.S.  Speaker: Aaron Miller, International Trade Manager, Virginia SBDC .
