Importing, Sourcing and Payments 

Perhaps you have an idea for a product to Import --  

  • It’s unique, scarce, or just not available here?
  • You may know a supplier?
  • You can buy it cheaper offshore? 

SCORE’s Importing workshop is for you! It will address -- 

  • Finding a reliable supplier?
  • Building a viable relationship?
  • Getting the product here?
  • How will payments be made?
  • What help and resources are available to you?  

The Workshop Presenters are SCORE volunteers with lifetime careers in various aspects of International Trade, who will share their real-life experiences. Help for Exporters is plentiful. Help for IMPORTERS is harder to find! If you are serious about Importing, this Workshop is for you!


Eli Kaufmann was born in Israel and after his military service, traveled to Germany where he completed his education and graduated with a master’s degree in structural, high pressure and non-ferrous welding. Upon return to Israel, he worked for US based Kaiser Steel building the evaporation basins in the Dead Sea.

In 1975 Eli bought a small food processing machinery company and grew it to a national size. In 1986 Eli and family immigrated to the US, where he and his wife bought a small wholesale gift-ware company and over the next nine years expanded it nationwide. In 1995 Eli, who by then had well established suppliers in the Far East, sold the wholesale company and building on his Far East connections, offers off-shore sourcing, procurement, QC and logistics services to the US market.
