Where are you on your exporting journey?

Getting started

Many companies struggle with taking their first step into exporting. If you want to learn how international sales could be a path of growth for your business and how to get started with exporting, access our tools and suite of resources including webinars, articles, and more.

Gathering information

Knowing the market you want to enter and the partners you want to work with is essential. We offer a vast array of information for you to get ready to close that deal in an international market. From global economic forecasts and freight forwarder vetting to legal and cultural information, we have your back.

Finding resources

Many of our clients express the need to access more cash flow when they’re ready to enter a new market. This generally comes from increasing their line of credit with their financial institution (FI). We work with your FI to help you have that additional access to cash, which can help you seal the deal with an international client or invest in equipment as you expand. We can also help you find the right partners for international business and help you better understand the legal implications of doing business abroad.

Ready to export

Having a sustainable, profitable global business is difficult. It takes serious market intelligence, solid partnerships, and strong revenues. We help you access additional funding so you can continue to grow and make sales internationally. What’s more, we insure your international sales, so if your client doesn’t pay, you’re covered.

Expanding even further

Are you looking to grow to the next market? Diversifying your trade markets is a smart way to protect your business from market volatility. We have the financing and market intelligence to help you expand to new markets and grow your footprint on a global scale.
