Get More Customers
Using One Key Strategy

If you're like most new business owners in Loudoun, you're focused on selling your products to customers here in our country. But think about this: 95 percent of the buyers of American products live outside the U.S. Exporting your products overseas offers you a huge opportunity to gain new customers.
Loudoun Economic Development wants to make it easy for you to learn how to export successfully. We're teaming with George Mason University and the Virginia/D.C. District Export Council to offer a one-day Export University seminar on March 29. Get details here.
