|GDI Solutions is a relationship
development service, creating a growing network of corporate executives,
specialized consultants or other relevant service providers, and local area business development
professionals (economic development organizations, chambers of commerce,
regional investment promotion agencies, etc.) to better serve the executives who are responsible for the
planning and implementation of major direct investment projects anywhere in the
USA or worldwide.
The business will develop
many personal "key account" relationships among top executives and leading
professionals who provide services for direct investment projects.
The services which investors need generally exist already, but the executives (who are typically busy
with many other responsibilities) have difficulty finding the right services at
the right time. As this website demonstrates, there are thousands of
resources out there, and we usually know how to find what is needed, or can find
The service providers also have great difficulty
finding the executives who need their specialized knowledge and capabilities to support
projects. Our independent work therefore helps them to reach more
executives who would value their services.

Introduction to Global Direct
Although there will
be Internet aspects to the development and efficient delivery of some
services, this is not an "e-business", nor is this site intended to become a
"portal" for public reference, unlike publishers or associations.
We differ from such organizations.
Instead, GDI Solutions can directly introduce
investors to valuable information resources and relevant services as appropriate. The work of GDI
Solutions is based on the development of professional working relationships and
market knowledge through personal contacts and market research work.
Technology merely facilitates such work, and this website makes it easier for
executives to find many types of basic information more easily on a 7x24
basis, while we focus on the work to address their more complex requirements.
This is not a "do it yourself" approach to direct
investment projects based on the publishing of website content or links for
investors. The content and links here are just for convenience, and to
introduce the scope of support which is available.
|The challenge of
GDI Solutions is therefore not to create new services for investors, but
rather to better connect investors to solutions which already exist.
The new services which we are creating, such as GUIDE and SICR, do not
exist, and require collaboration with many service providers to develop
these "shared services" to fill important gaps in capabilities from the
perspective of the investors we serve.
Another role is to assist executives in some of
their preliminary project research and planning work on a confidential basis
before they even reach the stage at which they want to be introduced to
other specialists such as area representatives or professional service
confidential and unique nature of corporate investment projects, as well as
the diverse capabilities and competition among service providers and
potential investment locations, necessarily makes this a very personal and
highly individualized service for all three groups of clients and contacts.
This website may link out to more relevant
websites in the future as a convenient service for participants, if that is
something they prove to want from GDI Solutions, but the primary service of
GDI Solutions is delivered through ongoing personal relationships, market
research, and the professional experience in this niche to suggest potential
solutions to investor needs on a highly individualized basis.
The service is to find good solutions to specific investor needs as
identified through close working relationships with many leading investors.
Instead of "pushing" lots of information out
at investors, and leaving them to try to sift through it all on their own to
find what they need, as in publishing or PR work, the role of GDI Solutions
is to become directly familiar with (and even anticipate) their needs, and
then "pull" in potential solutions efficiently.
developing and maintaining a very complex website which investors might use
to try to plan any types of projects on their own initiative, such as by
presenting vast amounts of standardized data about investment alternatives for their own
analysis, the focus of GDI Solutions will be to develop a growing network of
professionals with extensive practical knowledge about the planning and
implementation of direct investment projects in many industries and
Each global relationship leader at GDI Solutions will
focus on providing excellent support to a very limited number of executives,
service providers, and location representatives, typically in an assigned
geographic region or industry specialty.
Instead of promoting the "do it yourself"
approach through a website, our focus is on introducing executives
quickly to specific people with the knowledge and resources to address their
unique needs well.
