SCORE offers small companies an intro to global markets

Companies thinking about importing or exporting can get a good introduction to the basics of doing business across borders from SCORE, the nonprofit “Counselors to America’s Small Business” and resource partner with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). Three SCORE chapters have announced one-day Import-Export seminars: SCORE / New York, May 18; SCORE / East Bay (Oakland, Fremont, Calif.), various dates starting May 20; SCORE / San Diego, June 10. Look up local SCORE chapters here.

If you’ve thought about exporting, but have been hesitant to try, can you tell us why? Red tape? The credit crunch? Too risky? Choose (or write in) the biggest obstacle to exporting in our one-question survey here.
