Welcome

Welcome to IBNewsmag, the only publication focused on international business matters of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SME’s); the people and companies comprising the lifeblood of global trade, economic growth and job creation. 

 

In the same way our nation’s SME’s exhibit passion, vision and confidence in their enterprises, IBNewsmag has been reporting on global businesses, and their owners, since 2004 with the same verve.  In each monthly edition, some of the most interesting and successful businesses are featured, providing you news and information you didn’t even know you didn’t know.

 

Each month a relevant subject is featured, allowing you to learn and grow from other businesses outside your network. IBNewsmag helps SME’s, and those who serve them, cull the most relevant and practical info available for global business.  Also enjoy interesting, off-the-beaten-path features, fun tips and breaking news to boost exports, services and help your global business easily navigate what can often be difficult component and raw material imports among many more issues not necessarily supply-chain related. 

 

In each edition, you’ll find a practical and interesting foreign country profile to assist your business there, as well as, US-based international business success stories and feature articles on such pertinent, and sometimes challenging, subjects as international logistics, entrepreneurship, legal matters and banking/finance.  Subscribing to IBNewsmag will help you navigate those ‘international waters’ with intelligence and grace designed to help you succeed.

 

IBNewsmag is welcomed monthly by over 12,000 SMEs, government and education leaders throughout the USA with additional readership in many foreign countries.  Let us add you to our readership and help you succeed in your global business too.
