L-R: Martin Ezemma, EDC International Business Director; Dr. Pradeep Ganguly, EDC EVP; Sanjeev Sachdeva, Managing Director of sRs McCoy, Inc.; Jim Coleman, EDC President & CEO; Sohil Sachdeva, sRs McCoy, Inc. Director; Raj Pant, Allied Deccan CEO; Mayank Kapur, EDC Business Development DirectorOxon Hill, MD - Last weekend, the Prince George's County Economic Development Corporation's (EDC) International Business Development team participated in the SelectUSA Conference and brought home some major wins. After meeting with a number of internationally based business leaders, the EDC's team convinced four companies to open U.S. operations in Prince George's County this Wednesday and signed an agreement to house sRs McCoy Inc. in its accelerator. EDC President & CEO, Jim Coleman, was exhilarated at his team's success.
 
"We welcome the world to Prince George's County," said Coleman. "SelectUSA has been an outstanding conference that has enabled the EDC to facilitate the expansion of businesses that are seeking to come to the United States. We're mavericks in Prince George's County. When sRs McCoy came to our booth and said they were interested in coming to Prince George's County, we immediately put them in the car and took a tour of the County to show them how their investment dollars will create a lucrative return for them. Our value proposition is solid and sRs signed on the dotted lin. We are proud that Prince George's County is their gateway to success in this incredible market."
 
The SelectUSA Conference occurs every summer with the goal to connect international investors with viable opportunities in the United States. Representatives from jurisdictions from around the country descend upon Washington, D.C. to actively engage these business people looking to enter into the American market.
 
The team at the EDC took full advantage of its close proximity to give the investors a first-hand look at where and how seamlessly they are able to break into the American market. Sanjeev and Sohil Sachdeva, the father and son dynamic duo who run sRs McCoy, Inc., were very impressed by how the EDC was able to usher them into their own office space here in the United States.
 
"This is just a dream," said Sohil Sachdeva, Director of sRs McCoy Inc. "We never expected that by visiting this conference that we'd be able to open up an office in just a few days."
 
Sachdeva's father and business partner echoed his sentiments.
 
"It's all a ten days story," said Sanjeev Sachdeva, Managing Director of sRs McCoy, Inc. "It's only been ten days from the time that we decided to attend the SelectUSA Conference to the time that we are sitting in our American office."
