FDI Attraction - Economic Development

Community Assessment

Our approach to community assessment includes a deep dive into your community’s assets. Our consultants assess sites, analyze demographic and economic data and outline regional strengths.

Based on these assessments we evaluate the feasibility of your sites to meet the requirements of international investors. We will apply proprietary analytics and other tools to confirm or (re)define the most promising target industries and geographic markets for inbound FDI.

Community Training

As part of an integrated business attraction strategy, our Global Launch Program is designed to give Economic Development Organizations (EDO) an advantage in competing for FDI, with a focus on shifting the mindset of the EDO and its stakeholders to more effectively communicate with and promote themselves to foreign executives.

Our objective is to allow the EDO to improve their promotional message at every level. Our consultants assess your existing business attraction strategy and approach, combined with an on-site visit for best practice recommendations and workshops on effectively working and communicating with international prospects.

Community Promotion

Our consultants support EDO’s with their FDI outreach by drawing from international data sources, cluster analyses, industry trends and first-hand sources to provide customized research designed to help communities identify potential investor companies fitting their strategic profile.

We consult on trade shows and community delegation missions by leveraging our German and French language, business and cultural expertise.
