Matchmaking is one of the most valuable and integral parts of the SelectUSA Investment Summit. It facilitates interactions and connections between investors and economic developers, giving all participants the ability to initiate new business relationships and build on existing ones.

The Investment Summit matchmaking tool provides a digital platform for attendees from international companies to search for participating economic development organizations, government agencies, service providers, and other event sponsors. By setting up meetings with key participants in advance of the Investment Summit, attendees can make the most of their time and accomplish months’ worth of networking in a few days.

All Investment Summit attendees are encouraged to participate in the matchmaking system.
