The Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce of Los Angeles (SACC-LA) is a non-profit organization founded in 1988. It is one of 20 local chambers across the United States, cooperating under the umbrella of SACC-USA. SACC-USA was founded in 1906 in New York and is the oldest organization of its kind outside Sweden. SACC-LA connects people and enables innovative and creative exchange. The overall objective is to create business opportunities between Swedish and American companies and talent, and SACC-LA is in fact the only Swedish organization in Los Angeles with this purpose.
Los Angeles is “The Entertainment Capital of the World” which has resulted in a large amount of creative and innovative Swedish companies seeking business opportunities in Los Angeles. SACC-LA has therefore developed a business strategy and an event plan to add value for businesses within creative and innovative industries, such as film, games, fashion, music, advertising, and digital production.
The SACC-LA network consists of decision makers within the entertainment industry in Los Angeles, creative and innovative people, businesses, and celebrities, as well as entrepreneurial start-up organizations, investors, insurance agencies, lawyers, and banks, which could be useful for Swedish companies establishing their businesses in Los Angeles.
Each year SACC-LA hosts a variety of events targeting different segments, with the common purpose of creating business opportunities for Swedish and American companies and strengthen Swedish-American relations.
