Are you ready to increase your sales by diversifying into foreign markets?

Are you a small business looking to expand? Did you know that the best way to boost your bottom line is to look outside of our U.S. borders?

Selling internationally can help protect your bottom line from the ebbs and flows of one domestic market, while granting you access to more buyers. Learn about access to markets, access to capital, and access to resources to help your business enter the global marketplace!

Join experts from the U.S. Small Business Administration, U.S. Commercial Services, EX-IM Bank, and the Alaska Small Business Development Center to learn how you can:

  • Access export resources.
  • Find international buyers.
  • Obtain financing.
  • Protect your foreign receivables.
