The French American Chamber of Commerce is an organization established in 1896,[1] in order to promote the development of bi-national economic, financial and commercial transactions between France and the United States of America.

FACC Los Angeles Chapter[edit]

The Los Angeles Chapter of the FACC was launched on January 14, 2014[2] in Los Angeles with the help of the French Consul General Axel Cruau.[3] The mission of the FACC Los Angeles is to develop its members' businesses by facilitating and enhancing a network of successful firms in the greater Los Angeles area. It is the largest network of French-American companies in Southern California.

FACC Los Angeles Events[edit]

The FACC Los Angeles organizes various networking events including LinkUp, Private Dinner, Le Lunch de la FACC, French Heritage Night and French Tech Los Angeles, featuring renowned speakers. These events allow members of the FACC Los Angeles to meet, connect and find their future clients and business partners.

LinkUp events have featured speakers such as Ken Kessler[4] from Hub International, the French economist Guy Sorman, International Business Consultant Francis Cholle.[5] and Economist Scott Anderson from Bank of the West.[6]

Private Dinner events gather C-level executives from various industries who share a common interest in doing business together in an intimate and high-end environment.

They are a successful way to foster mutually beneficial relationships between their company-members, by providing the people present with future clients, partners or simply future sources of referrals.

The FACC Los Angeles organizes its yearly event, the French Heritage Night. It takes place at the Staples Center in February during a Los Angeles Clippers vs San Antonio Spurs basketball game.[7]
