As part of the Summit, the SelectUSA Tech program will connect early-stage and startup tech companies to prospects for advancement in the U.S. market, and the Select Global Women in Tech program will offer mentorship opportunities for international female founders, entrepreneurs, and executives in the tech sector.

The SelectUSA Investment Summit is an ideal venue to network and learn about the U.S. business landscape, which offers opportunities for companies from around the world to thrive. “The United States is the largest consumer market in the world and the best choice for Jordanian companies of all sizes looking to grow globally,” said Ambassador Wooster. The SelectUSA Investment Summit offers international companies a platform to make connections and gather information necessary to begin the process of growing in the United States – all under one roof.
