With the amazing technological advancements in communication and transportation over the past number of years, it’s much easier now for small businesses to expand into other countries. These companies are referred to as micromultinational businesses. A few weeks ago, I came across this article on Small Business Trends that gives some advice for companies that are looking to take their operations past their own borders into international markets. It links to a few other articles that provide more information, and to some stories of businesses that have made that leap.
The fact that such small businesses can have such a far-reaching influence also underscores the fact that our neighbors are not just those around us, but all with whom we come into contact. Gives the Good Samaritan parable a new edge, don’t you think?
