Getting Started in the U.S.

Investing in the United States of America

The United States is the largest destination for foreign direct investment in the world. The SelectUSA initiative showcases the United States as the world’s premier business location and provides easy access to federal and state-level programs and services related to business investment. SelectUSA is designed to complement the activities of our states—the primary drivers of economic development in the United States. SelectUSA seeks to highlight the many advantages the United States offers as a location for business and investment. From a vast domestic market, to a transparent legal system, to the most innovative companies in the world, America is the place for business. On the SelectUSA website you can browse business incentives offered by different states and territories.


The SelectUSA Investment Summit is the premier venue for international investors seeking to create and/or grow a successful venture in the United States.  The Summit will offer attendees an unprecedented opportunity to learn about how to grow their businesses and/or invest in the United States — and to make the right connections, learn about locations, and discover relevant resources to move their investments forward.  The SelectUSA Summit is for investors of all sizes – including established multinationals, small or medium-sized enterprises, and high-growth start-ups.  The United States is incredibly diverse, and the Summit brings that diversity together into one place – with representatives from the economic development offices from all across the United States.  The Summit will showcase investment opportunities from every corner of the United States, while high-profile business and government leaders share insights on the latest business trends.
