VetsGoGlobal is a Veteran led initiative of the U.S. Commercial Service whose focus is to educate and inform U.S. Veteran-owned, Service-Disabled Veteran-owned, and military spouse-owned businesses on the export process and international business opportunities. Veterans helping Veterans succeed!


Connecting Veterans to Global Markets

Every year, the U.S. Commercial Service (the trade promotion arm of the U.S. Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration) helps thousands of U.S. companies export goods and services worth billions of dollars. As part of our outreach, the VetsGoGlobal initiative can work with veteran-owned businesses like yours to identify and take advantage of export opportunities. Our global network is located throughout the United States and in U.S. Embassies and Consulates in more than 70 countries.

Why Export?

Over 90% of all consumers live outside the U.S. borders; foreign consumers hold 75% of global purchasing power.

Should I Export?

Veteran-owned businesses thrive at international business due to their effective decision-making, perseverance, sound ethics and compliance, and most of all having a global understanding.

How do I Start?

Developing an international business strategy can be labor-intensive for any company. Whether you are looking to make your first export sale or expand to additional markets we can help you jump-start your efforts through our trade counseling, business matchmaking, market intelligence, and commercial diplomacy.
