Two-thirds of the world’s purchasing power resides outside the U.S. Quite simply, the old rules of doing business only in America no longer apply. Businesses that truly want to grow can’t afford to ignore the export market. University of Missouri Extension and the Missouri Small Business & Technology Development Centers provide counseling and training assistance to help small businesses seize global opportunities.
