Morgan Crapps and Elizabeth Gibbes (of Parker Poe) presented at the Women in Economic Development (Win ED) Conference in Denver, Colorado. They gave a behind-the-scenes look at how international companies choose locations and execute their investment projects from start to finish.
Morgan and Elizabeth discussed the key considerations and action items for international companies when finding a new U.S. location, including factors unique to foreign direct investment (FDI) projects. They also covered the pitfalls that companies coming to the U.S. for the first time sometimes face and how to avoid them, and they provided practical advice for economic development organizations when recruiting or working with foreign investors.
The Win ED Conference brought together economic development leaders from across the country.
