Middle market companies are defined as those generating between $10 million and $1 billion in revenues. According to U.S. Census data, mid-sized firms account for 29% of U.S. business revenues, but only 9% of the value of U.S. exports. And a recently released study by American Express and Dun & Bradstreet showed that middle market companies have been the engine of U.S. job creation since the Great Recession, accounting for 92% of all private sector jobs created since 2008.
“Exporting represents a $928 billion opportunity1 for U.S. mid-sized companies2 over the next 10 years, yet only 17% of middle market firms currently trade internationally3,” said Susan Sobbott, president, Global Corporate Payments, American Express. “The Grow Global program is designed to help demystify the complexities of exporting, and help companies seize the opportunities available by tapping into markets outside the U.S.”
Who Can Benefit?
