What is SelectUSA?
SelectUSA seeks to highlight the many advantages the United States offers as a location for business and investment.
From a vast domestic market, to a transparent legal system, to the most innovative companies in the world, America is the place for business.
Attracting Investment, Increasing Employment
Recognizing that the competitiveness and job-generating ability of a nation is determined by its desirability as a place for businesses to operate, SelectUSA was created at the federal level to showcase the United States as the world’s premier business location and to provide easy access to federal-level programs and services related to business investment. SelectUSA is designed to complement the activities of our states—the primary drivers of economic development in the United States.
On our site, state economic development agencies and businesses—foreign and domestic—will find the information they need to better understand the complete value proposition offered to firms located in the United States. Information provided includes:
- A searchable guide of federal programs and services available to businesses operating in the United States—including grants, loans, loan guarantees, and tax incentives;
- Industry snapshots that describe the competitive landscape; and
- A catalogue on “Why to Select the USA?” that explains the advantages of operating a business in the United States.
In addition, the site offers a clickable map of the United States to direct our business visitors to individual states’ economic development agencies—their principal partners in the site selection process.
