The audience included Jordanian start-ups and entrepreneurial ventures seeking to expand their businesses by establishing a presence in the United States. Senior Commercial Officer Pierre-Louis stated, “…with a culture of innovation, entrepreneurship and a robust ecosystem to support start-ups to propel business growth, the United States is an ideal location for Jordanian small and medium-sized enterprises looking to grow globally.” Leah Schulz, an International Investment Specialist with SelectUSA, the U.S. government program to promote and facilitate inward U.S. investment joined the event virtually and highlighted the resources available to ensure Jordanian companies make a successful soft landing in the United States. She noted that the 2022 SelectUSA Investment Summit in Washington, DC is an excellent platform for Jordanian companies seeking to deepen access to the U.S. market. The event also included a U.S. site selection expert who focused on key considerations Jordanian businesses should evaluate when exploring locations to establish an enterprise in the United States.
