Why Go Abroad?
When you start your business, two strategies are available: first develop the local market or bet from the outset on the international market. The two options are fundamentally different and will lead you to different challenges. The local market being what it is, you will probably need to focus on internationalization if you aim to achieve quickly increasing growth.
The Canadian Trade Commissioner Service has created a questionnaire to assess your export potential, so you can concentrate your efforts in the right place at the right time. Don’t make the mistake of expanding your operations internationally if you don’t have the infrastructure, resources, contacts or knowledge in place to do so.
