The editor of AmHunCham info page would like to draw readers’ attention to the article published by the SelectUSA (U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration) The SelectUSA published: “In 2021 we had many firsts, milestones, challenges, and successes to celebrate at SelectUSA! Take a trip down memory lane with us to see all of our 2021 FDI accomplishments. We couldn’t have done it without you!”
COVID-19 brought many new challenges to our doorstep in 2021, particularly when it came to Investment Summit planning and preparation. Our Program & Events team worked around the clock to create an interactive virtual environment to host the 2021 Investment Summit, ensuring that the experience and benefits of attending remained, while attendees remained safe from COVID-19. See all of our 2021 Investment Summit firsts and successes:
- In addition to it being SelectUSA’s 1st fully virtual Investment Summit, it was also the first ever Investment Summit with representation from every single state and territory in the U.S.
- The Select Global Women in Tech (SGWIT) Mentorship Network launched at the 2021 Investment Summit, and is returning this year at the 2022 Investment Summit. Geared towards international female founders, entrepreneurs, and executives in the technology sector, SGWIT participants participate in matchmaking with mentors to help them see success when entering the U.S. market.
- For the first time, the Investment Summit hosted 27 interactive small-group workshops with more than 800 active participants and 13 unique pitching sessions, with over 100 early-stage tech companies showcasing their products to the audience. We are looking forward to more pitches in 2022!
- U.S. President Joe Biden delivered remarks, emphasizing the importance of FDI. In addition, we had 8 Cabinet Members and 28 U.S. Governors speak.
