You're invited! From Entrepreneur to Exporter

If you're not thinking "big" for your small business, you're missing out on lucrative opportunities overseas. Environmental, clean technology, life science, biotech and other technology companies have significant opportunities to expand in growing global markets. Does it sound impossible? Well, it's not. Small businesses make up 97 percent of all exporters.
