Going global is no longer just for large and established enterprises with tons of cash, but for companies of all sizes – from startups and micro independents, to tiny e-commerce firms and small businesses. The future belongs to the agile, lean and more responsive firms as well as to those who look to the world for business.

Four small business CEOs will share their experience on global business growth, success stories, challenges and lessons learned.  They will also address how their companies are reaching consumers on a global scale.
