Getting Started in the U.S.

For Norwegian companies

The United States welcomes investors of all sizes, including established multinationals, small or medium-sized enterprises, and high-growth startups to participate the annual SelectUSA Summit.

SelectUSA is a U.S. government-wide program housed in the International Trade Administration at the United States Department of Commerce. Since its inception, SelectUSA has facilitated more than US$ 23 billion in investment, creating and/or retaining tens of thousands of U.S. jobs.


SelectUSA offers the information and data that help businesses move investments forward.

  1. Information & Council
  2. Connections with Potential Partners
  3. Assistance with Navigating the Regulatory Environment

SelectUSA represents the entire United States and adheres to strict geographic neutrality. This means that while we are able to assist specific localities with individual promotional activities on a first-come, first-served basis, SelectUSA does not direct investment to one U.S. location over another U.S. location.
