Investment Partners

About Us

The National Strategic Selling Institute was made possible through our Investment Partners. Investment Partners are individuals and/or companies that have given significant monetary donations. These donors have generously provided some of the funding for the National Strategic Selling Institute (NSSI) to grow over the years, and continue to grow as we look into the future. Investment Partners are important to the history of the NSSI, as they have helped lay the foundation on which the NSSI has built, and will continue to build, for the future.
