More needs to be done, and companies should focus on exports as a fundamental part of their business activities rather than an afterthought. Thus ExportBoost(TM) was designed to help small and medium companies who are either experienced exporters, or just looking to start their international expansion to significantly grow their exports. ExportBoost service has two tiers – one  where the exporter is guided by the Broad Street Capital’s professionals and implements the program internally and the second where Broad Street Capital Group implements ExportBoost(TM) on its client’s behalf.  In either case, the clients are offered a unique guarantee, should they follow the program and their exports do not at least double in 18months, Broad Street Capital Group will refund all the fees paid by the clients for the ExportBoost(TM) service. ExportBoost(TM) is the first product of the very ambitious project being developed by the Broad Street Capital Group and its partners to greatly streamline international trading operations.
