eShipper launches its partnership with Export Development Canada (EDC) to offer Canadian businesses the opportunity to grow exponentially into global markets with full financial and strategic support. 

As opportunities for international expansion arise for Canadian businesses, many business owners are apprehensive about branching out due to the uncertainty involved. When considering the opportunity to expand their business, owners often struggle with answering these questions:

  • Which marketplace has a real need for my product? 
  • Who is my competition in global marketplaces? 
  • Will I be profitable? 
  • How can I trust a global buyer to pay me? 
  • How easily will I be able to take a bank loan and pay it back?

They give businesses the strategic tools and financial support and assurance necessary to take a leap of faith and make their mark on the global marketplace.
