SelectUSA Tech – Find Your Next Opportunity in The U.S. Tech Industry

SelectUSA is thrilled to participate in London Tech Week, as a platform to collaborate with partners from the U.S. Department of Commerce, across the U.S. government and with international technology firms interested in establishing a presence in the United States. The Trump Administration is working hard to maintain and enhance an environment in which companies operating in the United States can flourish – we’re reducing burdensome regulations, we’ve lowered tax rates, we’re focused on protecting IP and on improving infrastructure – in short, we’re doing everything in our power to make it easier and less expensive for companies to expand their operations in the United States.

The tech industry is one of the fastest-growing industries in the world today and a driver for innovation worldwide. According to CompTIA’s Cyberstates, in 2019 alone, the U.S. tech industry generated about $1.9 trillion in revenue and created more than 300,000 new jobs. Overall, the 557,000 U.S. tech business establishments, which include the 13,400 tech startups launched in 2019, support 12.1 million workers nationwide.

Beyond initial virtual meetings with tech companies during London Tech Week, SelectUSA offers information and counseling, such as market research and resources like the SelectUSA Investor Guide to help companies develop an FDI strategy; provides assistance to companies on navigating the federal regulatory system; and facilitates introductions to economic development organizations (EDOs) at the state and local level.

SelectUSA is dedicated to promoting and facilitating business investment in the United States and the SelectUSA Tech program is specifically focused on attracting FDI in high-tech sectors, with the goal of spurring innovation, increasing economic output, and creating high-skilled jobs in the United States.

SelectUSA partners with EDOs, accelerators, and service providers to deliver SelectUSA Tech virtual events tailored to tech companies from specific regions of the world, fundraising stages, and tech verticals. SelectUSA Tech virtual events, which include pitching sessions, workshops, and virtual tours, aim to increase participants’ understanding of U.S. market drivers and FDI opportunities in specific tech sectors across the United States, while also facilitating connections between potential business investors and prospective U.S. local business partners, research institutions, service providers, and federal, state, and local governmental officials.

SelectUSA has also recently established a new effort, Select Global Women in Tech, which seeks to support female founders of startups and established tech companies from international markets in achieving their goals of establishing, growing, and expanding their business operations to the United States. The Department of Commerce is an interagency partner in the U.S. Government’s whole-of-government Women’s Global Development and Prosperity Initiative, and this program supports the Administration’s emphasis on women’s economic empowerment through entrepreneurship, mentorship, and networking.
