Jennifer Grady Esq. has been selected from a pool of over 80 applicants to speak at the prestigious SelectUSA Investment Summit Academy held on June 19, 2016 in Washington, D.C. The SelectUSA Investment Summit will bring over 2,600 international investors, business leaders, entrepreneurs, and U.S. economic development organizations (EDOs) together on June 20-21 for education, insight, and networking.
Ms. Grady will be speaking at the SelectUSA Academy, a pre-Summit orientation for 500 attendees that covers the fundamentals of investing for businesses and entrepreneurs interested in expanding to the United States. The agenda for the event can be found here.
Recognizing that the competitiveness and job-generating ability of a nation is determined by its desirability as a place for businesses to operate, SelectUSA was created at the federal level to showcase the United States as the world’s premier business location and to provide easy access to federal-level programs and services related to business investment. SelectUSA is designed to complement the activities of states, which are the primary drivers of economic development in the United States.
The theme of this year’s Summit is “The Innovation Advantage” and will feature investment opportunities from every corner of the United States for global investors. High-profile business and government leaders will share their insights on the latest innovations and trends.
Participants will include international and domestic companies of all sizes seeking to establish or expand operations in the United States. Economic developers from across the state, regional and local levels will also be there, ready to facilitate and spark business investment.
The Summit will include an exhibition hall where U.S. economic development organizations (EDOs) can host individual or joint booths, displaying the advantages of their locations and connecting with international investors.
In 2015, the Summit was attended by over 2,600 people from more than 70 countries, including companies, business associations, and economic development organizations (EDOs) from all 50 U.S. states.
