Attracting Foreign Direct Investment via LinkedIn

Foreign direct investment is a direct investment into production or business in a country by an individual or company of another country. This is accomplished either by buying a company in the target country or by expanding operations of an existing business in that country.
We have seen the private equity world shrink around us in the last ten years which has opened up America's attractive venture capital space to international investors and private equity companies looking to acquire a piece of the American Dream. LinkedIn’s social networking offers the perfect avenue to attract international investors and fund one’s business ventures.
There has never been a better time to seek out and find international partners using LinkedIn. Having global partners allows one to be protected in key countries which is paramount to the long-term success of emerging business. This session also cover and discuss EB-5 investments and cross-continent partnerships as means to raise capital.
