Business Hacks & Tips
Businesses with one employee and a single foreign buyer are eligible for export credit insurance from the US Export-Import Bank. EXIM says that companies who export are 17% more profitable than those that don't.
90% of the EXIM Bank's credit insurance transactions assist small businesses. Even companies that don't need to protect their foreign receivables (yet), but would like to have some to protect, may be interested in the market diversification tool and the ecommerce innovation lab "to double your exports."
Learn more about EXIM's export credit services in this brief video. Why Should I Export?
EXIM's Minority and Women-owned Business Division invites small businesses to learn more about their services,and about the U.S. Commercial Service, Minority Business Development Agency, WEConnect International, and Organization of Women in Trade in a free ZOOM webinar on March 23 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern time.
