Join CenSec and U.S Embassy at a unique opportunity for advice and sparring on how to start etablishment in the U.S through the federal government program SelectUSA – the American version of Invest in Denmark.

SelectUSA is the federal government program housed within the U.S. Department of Commerce charged to promote and facilitate business investment into the United States.
You can learn more about SelectUSA here.

This event is for Danish organisations in the defence and security industry. The event will serve as inspiration for the participants and will provide information about how the American government, on a federal level, can offer free advice and sparring to Danish organisations, who wish to set up offices and/or production in the U.S.

At the event, we will hear about a Danish organisation’s hands-on experience with the program and unique journey in the U.S. which will serve as inspiration to all of us.

There will also be plenty of networking opportunities in the beautiful setting of Rydhave, the American ambassador’s residence, in Charlottenlund.

Date: 4 May 2022 9:00 – 11:00

Location: Rydhave, Strandvejen 259, 2920 Charlottenlund
