Calling all entrepreneurs and international traders!
e-HealthObjects, an award winning small Virginia company that sells software to the health care industry, is expanding in a big way in India.
Like e-HealthObjects, many small businesses are finding it easier than ever to go global. How are they able to do this? They have mastered the educational challenges in international trade. Yet almost 50 percent of small businesses that don’t export say that the reason for this is because they do not know where they should start.

Remember the many benefits to companies that export:
- New opportunities for growth
- A company is stronger when it diversifies into international markets
- Decrease the effects of cyclical and seasonal variations in domestic sales
- Exposure to new ideas in the global marketplace
- Increase management’s ability to compete domestically by responding to diverse customer preferences in the world markets.
This forum targets entrepreneurs engaged in the following three phases of global business expansion:
Prospective exporters/new to export:
Businesses having an international business vision but needing technical assistance and guidance on how to deal with various intricate aspects of doing international business.
Export-ready business: Businesses wishing to know what are the new export opportunities for their products and services; who can help them with tools and resources to exports.
Businesses wishing to expand your exports, to be updated on new trade financing programs and best practices in market entrance strategies.
