The globalization of American business is a major force that will continue to shape and mold the environment for small business and entrepreneurship over the next decade and beyond. Many small firms are beginning to face competition from abroad in the products and services they both provide and sell. For this reason many small businesses, including start-ups, are identifying foreign markets and foreign sources of supply as important parts of their strategy for growth and success.
The Hinds Community College SBDC International Trade Center, located at Hinds Community College SBDC in Raymond, can help small businesses as they enter the often confusing world of importing and exporting. They offer assistance in the following areas:
- evaluating product and company readiness to export
- accessing marketing data
- developing market entry strategies
- acquiring information on potential trade opportunities
- individualized counseling
- trade seminars
- financing sources
- trade missions
