While the U.S. exports some $2 trillion in goods and services to world markets annually, there is vast opportunity to increase both the number of U.S. exporters and the markets they are selling to— particularly among small and medium-sized firms. With more than 95% of the world’s consumers located outside of the U.S., your firm can greatly increase its global market share and profitability.
Not sure where to start? The State of Connecticut and Federal Government have tremendous resources for Connecticut businesses to help you develop a business plan, understand export finance resources, and gain the knowledge to kickstart your exports.
The CT Department of Economic and Community Development, U.S. Small Business Administration, EXIM Bank, CT Small Business Development Center, and the U.S. Department of Commerce describe the resources available to both current exporters as well as businesses looking to develop an export plan. Learn about the CT STEP Grant Program, which can reimburse qualifying Connecticut companies for certain export-related activities. On-Demand webinar available here:
