Intermediaries are becoming more important as the scope and nature of investment is changing. M&A, joint ventures, and strategic alliances are now more important than Greenfield FDI for corporate expansion. The huge growth in private equity and institutional investment is also transforming the financing and ownership of investment.
At the same time, competition for investment has never been more intense especially with global FDI declining and slowdown in global trade.
Networks, relationships, and professional services skills are core to investment attraction and facilitation. The most successful economic development organizations (EDOs) operate an intermediaries program as a key pillar of their business attraction strategy.
Influencers is a unique online platform providing a complete solution for EDOs and IPAs to develop and implement an intermediaries strategy.
Influencers helps to connect you with investment intermediaries in your country and in every country worldwide. It combines the power of data with Wavteq’s global experience in investment attraction.
Investment attraction is broader than corporate outreach. Working with site selectors, consultants, banks, legal firms and other intermediaries can enhance your investment success.
With access to 25 different types of professionals located in over 700 cities across 182 countries around the world, and growing daily - fDi influencers provides access to all the professional contacts your organisation requires to support investment attraction.
