Go Global: Exporting for Business Growth

Why Export?

Over 70% of the world’s purchasing power and 95% of the world’s population is outside of the United States

98% of good exporting companies in the U.S. are small to medium sized businesses

Companies that export typically grow 15% faster and are 12% more profitable than companies solely operating in the U.S.
