SelectUSA Academy – Sunday March 22nd 

The SelectUSA Academy is an intensive, practical orientation that will present the basics of investing in the United States at a level of detail that will not be covered during the main portion of the Summit. The Academy is set up in two tracks for international investors and economic development organizations (EDOs). The Academy will run from 2:00-5:45pm followed by a special networking reception.

The Investor Track will primarily target investors who are new to the U.S. market and feature sessions on the investment process, what international firms should look for when investing, partnering with EDOs and resources for navigating investor visas.

The EDO Track, tailored to state and local governments and economic development organizations, will focus on trends and resources to help EDOs achieve their FDI attraction goals. Sessions will cover how global companies approach expansion to the U.S., building, executing and sustaining an FDI strategy, the EB-5 Program and FDI development and trends in reshoring and FDI.

The EB-5 Panel, titled “EB-5: How Does it Fit with FDI Development?” will be led by  IIUSA Executive Director Peter Joseph, IIUSA Director Angel Brunner (President, EB5 Capital) and Vermont EB-5 Regional Center Executive Director Brent Raymond. The focus of this panel is to educate economic development organizations (EDOs) on best practices in EB-5 funding.
