Why Consider Exporting?  It’s Good for Your Bottom Line!

Access.

Today, improvements in trade finance, the Internet, and trade agreements have dramatically increased access to markets worldwide.

Demand.

More than 70 percent of the world’s purchasing power is located outside of the United States. Your competitors are increasing their global market share, and you can too.

Profitability.

Exporting can be profitable for businesses of all sizes. On average, sales grow faster, more jobs are created, and employees earn more than in non-exporting firms.

Competitive Advantage.

The United States is known throughout the world for high quality, innovative goods and services, customer service, and sound business practices.

Risk Mitigation.

Most companies that export have an easier time riding out fluctuations in the U.S. economy and are more likely to stay in business.

Program to Enhance Women’s Impact on Leadership in Business and Career

April 27, 2017 (NEWARK, NJ) America’s SBDC New Jersey invites women veterans and entrepreneurs to attend Women Warriors in Business, a high-impact women entrepreneur and leadership symposium and luncheon on Thursday, May 11, 2017 at 8:00 am until 2:00 pm, taking place at Rutgers Business School located at 1 Washington Park in Newark, NJ.

“The goal of Women Warriors in Business is to facilitate a real dialogue about topics that are important to women entrepreneurs and leaders” said NJSBDC Chief Executive Officer and State Director Brenda B. Hopper. The program will help women explore leadership challenges and opportunities, identify competitive advantages, help with personal and organizational branding, access lenders for financing, and utilize procurement certifications that are necessary when it comes to competing for public/private contracts.

NJSBDC - Women Warriors in Business (5.11.17)Focusing on empowerment, “Women Warriors in Business” will give women entrepreneurs and leaders candid insights from experts.  Three panels will focus on the following: ‘Being an Entrepreneur in Business and Career’; ‘Integrated Marketing in a Digital World’; and ‘The Real Deal in Winning Public and Private Contracts.’  The panels are comprised of accomplished entrepreneurs such as Cheryl McCants of Impact Consulting Enterprises; Michele Litzky of Litzky Public Relations; and Andaiye Taylor of BrickCityLive.com. Panelists also include business leaders and experts including Maureen Fairfax, Vice President, Strategic Sourcing at Prudential Financial; Dr. Tendai Ndoro, Regional Director of the NJSBDC at Rutgers University – Newark; Beverly Winkler, Director of Organizational Engagement, Learning & Development at PSEG; Dawn Fitch-Mitchel, Director of Diversity for DDB Worldwide; Stacy Smollin Schwartz, Rutgers University, Marketing Professor; Donald Newman, Director of Small Business Advocacy, Business Action Center, NJ Department of State.

“We’re excited to partner with The American Legion and provide guidance to our women veteran entrepreneurs.” added Hopper. “These outstanding women have many options available to them and we want to make sure they know the strength of entrepreneurship, while understanding that our network of business services and resources are here for them as well.” 

According to U.S. Census Bureau data, New Jersey based women-owned firms make up nearly 32 percent of all businesses, generating $49.5 billion in receipts.  Nationally, a 2012 study from the National Women’s Business Council reported that over 9.8 million women have businesses that generated $1.4 trillion in receipts.  Of that figure, approximately 383,000 veteran women-owned businesses – which are one of the fastest growing segments of the veteran population – generated $17.9 billion in receipts. 

“Though the numbers appear encouraging, women business owners still face significant growth challenges, as many cite issues including access to capital, education and resources being contributing factors to business development,” said Hopper. “Women Warriors in Business” aims to address key issues facing women entrepreneurs and leaders while providing encouragement, support and access to the resources needed to fuel growth.”  

The keynote speaker for Women Warriors in Business” is Stephanie D. Burroughs, of StephanieSpeaking, LLC, who is also a senior procurement consultant for NJSBDC Headquarters.   An expert in diversity contracting, Stephanie will discuss having and succeeding in business within today’s global marketplace.
