Entrepreneurs Thinking Globally

"Globalizing is risky. Entrepreneurs embrace risk. Therefore entrepreneurs embrace globalization." – Leigh Buchanan | Editor-at-large | Inc. Gone Global, April 2007

I ran across this quote the other day and thing there is a lot of truth to it. Entrepreneurs these days almost can’t even dream about their next venture with out thinking globally.

Houston, for example, is one of the most international cities in the US, with more than 80 foreign consulates and a port that ranks first in the US for foreign waterborne tonnage.

The number of resources we have here for entrepreneurs thinking globally is seemingly endless, from the Greater Houston Partnership to the District Export Council to foreign chambers of commerce. 

What advice would you give to entrepreneur’s thinking globally? If you’re an entrepreneur who does business globally what are some tricks of the trade you have learned?
