Explanation of column headings above
  •  Organizations are generally sorted in postal code order so that locations which are geographically close to each other will usually (not always) be grouped together.  This is a selective directory, even though the state directory is more comprehensive than the very selective one we will maintain at the regional level to highlight the organizations which support our work or are found to be of frequent interest for the convenience of the executives and business advisors we serve.
  •  Scope : is the area served by the organization, and postal code.  We may include thumbnail maps which expand to show information about participating areas, or link directly to good maps or GIS research tools on the organization's website.
  •  Contacts : relationship leader at GDI Solutions for maintaining information about contacts in this area.  If there is a working relationship through our various GUIDE services, we also list the key organization contact, phone, and optional e-mail.
  •  Website and other resources : Aside from the main website link, we may include other direct links to highlight special features of expected interest to executives, especially if they might not be readily noticed by just visiting the website.  A good example of this is when relevant content is actually maintained somewhere else, such as a regional website rather than the local one, so that one would otherwise need to know to follow the available links between the websites.
The directory above links to the websites of many New York economic development organizations (EDO) and provides contacts and Area Profiles, Surveys, or other available content about NY as a "long list" extension of our contacts directory for the NY and larger US Northeast region, following the same structure as our global contact directories.

These area representatives would typically include

  •  a state department of commerce or industry or a provincial government office
  •  greater metro city or county area chamber of commerce
  •  county economic development agency
  •  industrial development corporation or council - IDC
  •  alliance for business development, community development
  •  investment promotion agency - IPA
  •  industry cluster development initiatives, business incubators, technology parks
  •  regional or global professional B2B networking organizations, business partnering, joint venture development, or strategic business alliance services
  •  trade and investment promotion offices
Despite the wide variety of names for such economic development organizations, and variances in the scope of their services, the ones we list are generally actively involved in efforts to attract, expand, and retain business investment projects in their areas (offices, factories, etc.), including the attraction of foreign direct investment projects (FDI).  This typically includes support services, financial incentives, and information for corporate site selection decisions as well as local business retention and expansion services. 

The presence, absence, or position of any organization on these lists, or their position on the lists, does not imply any endorsement or opinion about their services, nor by them about our own.

The selections are simply intended to be helpful to executives who may be unaware of such contacts, or how to reach their websites quickly.  Please contact us directly for relevant introductions or any additional contacts, market knowledge, and research which we don't publish.

Contact information for relationship leaders at Global Direct Investment Solutions :

We develop and maintain working relationships among participating area representatives - economic development organizations - and professional service providers as well as senior corporate executives who are responsible for the planning of major projects such as new, relocated, expanded or consolidated offices, factories, distribution centers or other operations.
