Is there an International Market for Your Product or Service?

I recently returned from an International Trade Mission to Santiago Chile.  I made a ton of contacts and am excited to guide our clients to potential trade in South America.

Exporting is not a slam dunk nor is it a panacea for your business problems, but if you have a good product and a solid business check it out.  Expect a great deal of research, understanding and a sellable product or service.  Just because you make it doesn’t mean it will sell in the international arena.

A great resource is  If you do consider exporting, contact me at the SBDC.  I can help get you started and connect you with our excellent partners to guide you along the way.
