Many small or mid-size tech businesses generally think of market expansion to the south to mean entering a specific US market segment. A friend of TechConnex members, Maricio Ospina (International Trade Branch of Ontario Economic Development) wants you to think broader. And he is ready to help you make the connection without you having to over-extend your reach!
