About Us

We are trade and technology experts

We've spent years building a team and a network to help us find innovative solutions that empower the work of experts in the field.

Our Story

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

We deliver unique 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 organisations 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 multiply their impact. Today, we partner with a range of private and public organizations to help create a more connected world.
