About Us


Helping create a new world of opportunities

At Getting to Global, our mission is to build and deploy innovative programs backed by cutting-edge technology solutions that multiply the impact of leading economic development, trade, and investment organizations around the world.

Simply put, we deliver unique tools and technologies that make trade and investment organizations more efficient.

We started as an educational platform, offering training, insights and best practices in online global strategy. But as we were growing and talking with organizations and agencies from all over the world, we came to realize how our experience and network could be put to better use. And that is how Getting to Global became the umbrella for a set of tools and platforms that help trade and investment organizations grow their economic impact. Today, we partner with a range of private and public organizations to help create a more connected world.
