OnTheShortList.com is the new business location research tool from Global Direct Investment Solutions ( www.gdi-solutions.com ), which personally introduces executives to relevant professionals and information resources for direct investment project plans anywhere.
This is somewhat like an independent concierge service, providing rapid market research work and over 25,000 links to contacts worldwide. We call it "corporate development for a networked world". This shared service is personal in response to enquiries - not just directories of links.
We openly share knowledge of business locations and service providers in a globally consistent way. This can also help economic development and other professionals to communicate what differentiates their capabilities to assist executives with their project plans.
