Connecting the U.S. Minority Small and Medium Sized Technology Businesses (SMEs) and CEBOT Stakeholders to Export and Foreign Direct Investments.

CEBOT's international trade research and policy development team endeavor to mitigate the risk of information asymmetry often characterized as how SME business owners have  limited access to reliable and affordable information about business opportunities overseas.  CEBOT is working to develop long term relationships with the U.S. Department of Commerce to help close deals by providing actionable market intelligence, information on the mechanics of exporting, market entry strategies, guidance on overcoming barriers, and information on trade financing options.

Worldwide competition for large-government contracts is fierce, with many contracts resulting in billions of dollars in sales.

With global infrastructure investment expected to reach $90 trillion during the next 15 years, we will advocate globally for the selection of U.S. suppliers in foreign government procurement opportunities. We will provide dedicated advocacy support to U.S. companies competing for foreign civilian and defense government procurements.
