Secure the best international partners to grow your sales. U.S. small and medium-sized businesses can save time and money by leveraging the U.S. Commercial Services International Partner Search (IPS) to find pre-qualified global partners who are already interested in their products and services.

Through our IPS, you can obtain a report of up to five qualified overseas agents, distributors, manufacturers, representatives, joint venture partners, licensees, franchises, or strategic partners. You will get high-quality market information on the sales potential for your products and services; complete contact information on key officers; intelligence on company size, sales, years in business and number of employees; and a statement from each potential partner on the marketability of your product or service.
