Exceeded all my expectations

I had the pleasure of working with ResearchFDI for the graphic design of our target industry flyers, and I must say, their services exceeded all my expectations. The team at ResearchFDI conducted a comprehensive sector analysis of our region, which allowed them to create flyers that were not only visually stunning but also strategically tailored to our target audience. As a direct result of these beautifully designed flyers, we have seen an increase in engagement and interest from our target audience. I highly recommend ResearchFDI's graphic design services to anyone looking to elevate their marketing materials and make a lasting impression on their audience.

Highly recommend

We joined South Carolina’s DOC trade mission to Canada in 2018 and 2019 and as with any business, getting in front of the right people is extremely important. ResearchFDI have taken the time to understand our business and our value proposition to deliver us qualified appointments. I would highly recommend them for their professionalism and high-quality leads.

More qualified leads

We began working with ResearchFDI for industrial recruitment assistance after trying nearly every agency out there. ResearchFDI not only provided more qualified leads, but they were also true partners in our efforts. In late 2017, they set up a meeting for our staff with Dajcor Aluminum in Chatham, Ontario. This initial meeting led to the eventual location of Dajcor’s first manufacturing facility in the United States within the One East Kentucky region. Their project will create 265 new jobs and invest more than $19 Million in Hazard, Kentucky while also being an attractor of additional supply chain companies. Bruce and his team are the best at what they do.


Marie-Josee Primeau


Invaluable business partner

During Invest Quebec's trade mission to the Minexpo, I had the opportunity to engage with major mining sector players like Barrick Gold, Glencore, and Rio Tinto, thanks to ResearchFDI. They have proven to be an invaluable business partner that comprehends our sales goals and delivers tailored B2B sales development campaigns. I wholeheartedly endorse ResearchB2B for small and mid-sized businesses seeking to prioritize outbound sales development in their overall business growth strategy.


Dan Atkinson


Saved us countless hours and dollars

The Manufacturers Association of Maine and ResearchFDI jointly worked together with Silvex to identify high volume sales leads in an industry of Silvex’s choice. All leads were exactly what we had requested and one of those turned into production volume work within a couple of weeks of the initial contact. Their prequalification process saved us countless hours and dollars in sales and marketing efforts by matching us with a potential customer who had an immediate need. We are very happy with the results and intend to utilize these services more in the immediate future.

Highly Knowledgeable

As a rural economic development professional targeting Agrifood businesses, I highly recommend ResearchFDI's online investment attraction training. The trainers were highly knowledgeable and tailored the program to our needs, providing practical tools and strategies that have had a marked impact on our organization's ability to attract investors. Despite the online format, the training was engaging and interactive, and the focus on the Agrifood sector was particularly valuable.

They deliver results

When the City of Surprise wanted to expand its investment attraction pipeline, we interviewed several firms. ResearchFDI, led by Bruce and his team, had a strong reputation in the industry and stood out to us because they genuinely wanted to help us meet our objectives. They offered quality data analytics, personalized service, and we used their FDI365 software for a year. We were very happy with the leads generated and even hired them to assist with appointment setting for our sales missions. During a recent mission to Canada, ResearchFDI provided us with a well-organized meeting schedule and thorough briefing, making each meeting impactful. The Surprise team considers ResearchFDI vital to our business attraction strategy because they genuinely care about providing value and consistently deliver results.
