Vision Bordeaux Export
Always willing to foster the French American Business Community, the FACC has launched in July 2016 a new program, Vision Bordeaux Export (VBE), in partnership with the Commision Internationale des Clubs Economiques d’Aquitaine in Bordeaux Area, France.
The purpose of Vision Bordeaux Export is to help 7 French innovating companies to enter the American market and settle their business in Houston. All their projects are strong and relevant and diversified in a wide range of industries and activities.
In this project, the FACC operates like a matchmaker: after selecting and contacting local organizations which meet the criteria set by the French businesses, the final objective is to sign an agreement between the two partnering companies.
