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 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. More instructions on how to utilize the platform will be distributed when the networking platform launches in Spring 2023.
Who Uses the Platform
Connect with participating economic development organizations, government agencies, service providers, and other event sponsors. Only approved attendees who opt into sharing their information in their Investment Summit Applications will have access to the networking component of the Investment Summit.
How to Use the Platform
STEP 1: APPLY TO ATTEND THE INVESTMENT SUMMIT
All applicants who are approved to attend the Investment Summit will have access to the networking platform. During the application process, questions will be asked to help build your personal and company profiles. You will be asked to confirm your participation in networking at the end of your Investment Summit 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 platform and that you cannot connect with other Investment Summit attendees through the platform.
STEP 2: REVIEW INSTRUCTIONS AND FINALIZE PROFILE
All applicants who have already received their approval to attend the Investment Summit will receive networking instructions in Spring 2023 for participants to begin scheduling meetings. 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 networking platform will enable attendees to identify and meet with potential partners while participating in the Investment Summit. Once participants log into the Investment Summit networking 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.
