In 2012 a partnership has been created between the French American Chamber of Commerce of Houston and the regional council of La Vienne. Since then two delegations of La Vienne come annually in Houston to discover and experiment the American market. This partnership is bilateral and each years, Texan companies also come to La Vienne to find opportunities in France.
This year, ten entrepreneurs of La Vienne will try to live their American dream in Houston thanks to this partnership. The goal of this partnership is to promote economic relations between Houston and France and here in that cas, more specially the region of La Vienne. Working and helping small size french companies to develop in the US is part of our mission. We will find appointements to give the opportunity to these entrepreneurs to meet people that can help them to settle in the Houston’area.
In a few days, the French companies have the opportunity to meet specific contacts that can help them according to their sector. These companies have acces to the network of the French American Chamber of Commerce to find what they are looking for and meet the right people in Houston. On the other hand the region of La Vienne presents to the local business the territory and its advantages such as the door to Europe or Africa.
