Jason Hickey, President and CEO, lead a breakout session during the SelectUSA Investment Academy program on Wednesday, June 20th. #SelectUSASummit connects international business investors with growth opportunities across America. Participants of past summits have announced over $71 billion in new investments.
This year’s theme, “Invest Here. Grow Here. Succeed Here”, focused on the crucial connections between U.S. economic developers and international business investors. The summit highlighted investment attraction strategies that will lead to more jobs for U.S. workers and better returns on investment for companies.
Hickey’s session, “Understanding the Diverse Landscape of Incentives”, illustrated the dynamic space of incentives through successful case studies and best practices. Enjoy the full description of the session here:
State and local governments are eager to support businesses seeking to create jobs and invest in their communities. To provide assistance to these prospective companies, communities provide economic development incentives, such as tax credits, cash grants, and training support. These opportunities vary greatly across states, counties, and cities, and can often be difficult to decipher. This panel will lead Summit attendees in how to navigate this diverse landscape of incentives and best utilize what these localities can offer. Additionally, the panel will highlight several successful case studies and examples of businesses in different industries that have effectively taken advantage of these opportunities.
The United States welcomes investors of all sizes and from a wide range of industries, including established multinationals, small or medium-sized enterprises, and high-growth startups. The SelectUSA Investment Summit brings the diversity of the United States together under one roof, allowing both new market entrants and established firms to find the location of their next U.S. investments. The Summit provides: a place for global business investors to explore investment opportunities from every corner of the United States; a place to learn about the latest investment policies and trends from high-profile business and government leaders; and a place to make business deals happen.
