SelectUSA Investment Summit is an excellent networking platform. We were given a chance to meet with a number of high profile people we simply would not have access to otherwise. Highly recommend it to those who are interested in investing in the US and building relationships both at Federal and State levels. Note: The Virtual Platform will have both chat and video call functionalities available. You will also be assigned a table number for when you are meeting on site. Instructions on how to utilize the Virtual Platform will be distributed when the platform launches in Spring 2023.
Who Uses the Virtual Platform?
Only approved Investment Summit attendees who opt into sharing their information in their Investment Summit application will have access to the Virtual Platform.
When to Use the Virtual Platform?
The Virtual Platform will launch networking prior to the Investment Summit. You will receive additional information in Spring 2023.
How to Use the Virtual Platform?
STEP 1: APPLY TO ATTEND THE SELECTUSA INVESTMENT SUMMIT
All applicants who are approved to attend the Investment Summit will have access to the Virtual Platform. Information provided in your Investment Summit application will be used to help build your personal and company profiles on the platform, and you will be asked to confirm your participation in networking at the end of your application. PLEASE NOTE: If you wish to participate in networking, you will need to agree to share your basic details with other participants. Opting out will mean that you will not be searchable in the Virtual Platform and cannot connect with other Investment Summit attendees through the platform.
STEP 2: REVIEW INSTRUCTIONS AND FINALIZE PROFILE
All approved Investment Summit attendees will receive instructions in Spring 2023 to begin scheduling meetings in the Virtual Platform. Approved attendees should ensure that the information on their personal profile (and company profile, where applicable) is correct and complete to maximize their experience with the platform.
STEP 3: START SCHEDULING MEETINGS
The Virtual Platform will enable attendees to identify and meet with potential partners while participating in the Investment Summit. Once participants log into the Investment Summit Virtual Platform and update their profile, they can search and filter for economic development organizations, companies, or service providers who can help move their investment goals forward.
