Gear Up For Globalization

We are gearing up to rally the global small business troups to export like mad in 2008 -- a year when the U.S. dollar is so low that it makes exports of all American goods a flashing blue light special.

In getting started, we have been working behind the scenes to create a new global platform for small businesses that will help them connect, collaborate and do more business internationally but you must first sign up for Borderbuster to learn about the launch on February 5th. Yes, word will get out fast, but why wait? Go here.

Next, we decided to reach out by email to the best of the best of global business experts and ask their opinion relative to the following question:
Do you think Ex-Im Bank will cut back or be more willing to extend loans to SMEs (that qualify on exports) this year in light of a possible recession?
My belief is that entrepreneurs and small businesses are typically the ones who create jobs in a downturn (refer to WSJ commentaries here and here) and that they most certainly lead the way on exports.

Let's see what some of our experts weigh in with starting tomorrow. You won't want to miss this.

And saving the best for last, on Tuesday, January 29th, we will be interviewing GEM Research Director I. Elaine Allen, PhD, on the latest key findings from the GEM 2007 Executive Report.

Be sure to stay tuned on all these great channels of global small business information.
