The United States Business Association of E-Commerce is poised to open for business. Its mission is to help SMEs, as well as minority- and veteran-owned startups, to bridge the e-commerce digital divide. The B2B marketplace platform will connect small and medium-sized firms to domestic and global buyers. USBAEC founder Tayde Aburto expects to have at least 70 companies signed on and 17-20 exporters from Mexico on board for the official launch. The USBAEC bills itself as a disruptive business ecosystem of buyers, partners and suppliers.
