Going Global
International Technology Forum

How does international trade affect Colorado's economy?
How can you sell or buy technology services internationally?

Building a business today is Global by intention or by default. The Web, VoIP, and all the new technologies have made us all neighbors and in some cases have brought our competition into our own backyard.  Businesses in other countries face these same challenges and opportunities. There are countries that are looking for partners in the United States. Of course like us they would like to sell their products to us. They are also looking for partners as well as buy our products and services. That can be a win/win that could take your company to a new level.

How is this achieved? How do we avoid the traps and capitalize on the opportunities…in fact, how do we learn about the opportunities and possibilities? Like everything in business, there is the slow and the wrong way. There is also the right way and a faster way to make it all happen. If you and your organization have an interest in building an international network, this is a must-attend program. RMIMA is hosting a stellar event with a great panel of experts who are based in Colorado, and will share with you the real ins & outs of international business.
