When you think “global company,” what do you imagine? A massive conglomerate? A far-reaching tech corporation? In this TED Institute video,”The Global Business Next Door“, Ted Scott Szwast reveals that our image of the global business is wrong – 98% of US exporters are in fact companies with less than fifty employees.
