In 2017, the Greater Irvine Chamber made an audacious decision to conduct an aggressive foreign direct investment (FDI) campaign in the U.K.

We knew we had successful and happy international companies in Irvine. And we knew that we had the assets and an exciting, innovative ecosystem here. What we needed was an independent professional evaluation of our proposed initiative targeting the life science sector in the United Kingdom.

Enter OCO Global.

For 20 + years, OCO Global has been working with cities, states, and economic development organizations to help build and execute successful strategies to attract international investment. Choosing them to work with us was one of the smartest decisions we made. Their management team is well connected, industry sector savvy, fearless, and determined. Their industry sector databases and lead generating capacity are impressive. And to say they go above and beyond the call of duty would be an understatement. Ask any of our FDI delegates who traveled with us to meet with the dozens of expansion-ready companies we interviewed for the last four years.  

We now move the initiative forward knowing that OCO Global—CEO Mark O’Connell, along with Colin McCullagh, Yassin Nahi, and Ian Hunter—built the sturdy platform upon which we established our profile, reputation, and network and which brought us together with our U.K. companies.

Any company, organization, or government looking to effectively explore, develop, or establish themselves in another country should engage with OCO Global. It’s always better to have success on your side.
