Are you curious about growth opportunities in foreign markets but afraid of new or evolving risks?
Selling or operating abroad can offer significant growth opportunities, while exposing your company to new and incremental risks. Companies often fear elevated credit risk associated with foreign customers, a lack of working capital financing required to support often larger foreign contracts and negative cash flow consequences associated with longer fulfillment cycles. While legitimate, fear and the inability to properly understand and overcome these risks, may limit your company’s growth potential, possibly causing you to lose ground against your competitors.
