While June is widely recognized as Pride Month, it is also known as Effective Communications Month. The importance of effective communication cannot be understated as proper communication allows for the transfer of information and knowledge.
A 2022 NSBA survey of 530 small businesses identified that many small businesses have an interest in exporting but felt there are significant hurdles to overcome. EXIM continues to conduct free webinars that provide information on the opportunities and challenges of exporting and help businesses of all sizes grow through international sales.

With 95 percent of the world’s consumers located outside the United States, exporting represents tremendous growth opportunities for businesses of all sizes. Companies who export their goods and services are more profitable than those that don’t, can diversify their customer portfolio, and are better positioned to sustain domestic economic downturns.

- Improve competitiveness and win more sales in global markets.
- Mitigate the risk of nonpayment.
- Access pre-export working capital needed to fulfill export orders.
