Real Estate

Contact us for independent project assistance in confidence, or for assistance promoting an area.  We provide personal introductory referrals to our contacts and other "short list" research or project planning assistance according to the investment project interests of the corporate executives and business advisors we serve.

We are independent - not a government agency or investment promotion agency.

We are also developing a related European directory of professional service providers.

That includes site selection consultants, corporate real estate firms, property developers, design and construction firms, project management, tax advisors, labor market (HR) specialists, financial incentives for investment projects, relocation services and other specialists whose capabilities may be helpful when planning and implementing projects.

We welcome suggestions for additions or updates to this or our Invest in Europe directory.  

The Czech Republic economic development directory below (scroll down) links selectively to the websites of Czecj economic development organizations (EDO's).

These are also known as investment promotion agencies (IPA), local or regional development agencies (RDA's), or as public-private partnerships such as industrial or community development corporations which encourage companies to invest in the Czech Republic.

The directory may also include major chambers of commerce or national and local industry organizations and professional associations which provide useful services or information for reference by potential investors in their region or industry sector.

We may also include links to universities associated with science and research parks or technology business incubators, and to professional service providers.  We selectively provide executive summary content such as Area Profiles and Area Surveys to highlight potential business locations and what differentiates them.

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 this 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 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.

Send questions, suggestions, or comments about this site to Disclaimer.
