Purpose of Snavi

Snavi (Site Navigator) is an innovative website launched to create a genuine meeting place for international companies considering corporate establishment in the U.S. and American communities who are ready to welcome them. Snavi's collection of unique services is aimed at supporting the entire process of U.S. site selection and international business development.

Contribution of International Corporations to Local Communities in the U.S.

The practice of companies expanding their operations to the U.S. has been taking place since America's very foundation. Companies in virtually every industry come from all over the world to establish American manufacturing bases. These companies can attest to how their American expansions drastically improved their global market share, as well as their overall standing in the international business community. Jointly, the developments have improved the quality of life for their surrounding communities by energizing employment and economic consumption. These mutually beneficial relationships succeed in supporting the needs of both global industries and U.S. communities.

Snavi's services to U.S. Communities

Many U.S. economic development agencies and industrial parks have created their own homepages to attract potential business to their areas. However, that information does not necessarily seem to reach companies outside the U.S. who are planning international expansion. There seem to be two possible reasons for this:

  1. The difficulty of individually navigating literally thousands of similar sites
  2. A lack of additional support aimed at overcoming the difficulties of an international venture

Snavi will solve these issues and assist in matching your community with potential international companies by offering these services:

  • Creating an Snavi Community page for your area and featuring it on our interactive site
  • Posting a link to your community's Homepage on our site
  • Offering other services specifically designed to invite international companies to your area.

For applications and/or inquiries, please contact us.
