Sweden and the United States share a rich history that precedes the 1906 founding of the Chamber.
Founded in 1906, The Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce, Inc. (SACC-New York) is the preeminent Swedish-American transatlantic organization dedicated to the promotion, advancement, and protection of direct commercial relations between the United States and Sweden. SACC-New York is one of the largest and most active organization of its kind in the United States and is undisputedly the largest Swedish Chamber of Commerce in the world. We are a dynamic business organization providing crucial support to Swedish and American companies, as well as individuals, and producing celebrated events such as The Lucia Trade Award, The Executive Women’s Conference and the Farm to Fork green summit. In September 2006, SACC-New York celebrated one hundred years of promoting commerce and trade between Sweden and the United States. SACC-New York is a fundamental part of the Swedish American business community, just as it was one hundred years ago.
SACC-New York was the first Swedish Chamber outside of Sweden and the first Swedish-related Chamber in the Americas. Today it is the largest, most active and most influential Swedish Chamber outside of Sweden. No other Swedish-American organization counts as many top CEOs among its board members. SACC-New York has an extensive and impressive network and few can provide the same set of services ranging from the high-caliber events to professional consulting assignments assisting clients exploring or expanding in the United States.
SACC-New York provides business services that deliver multiple, measurable benefits for companies. We target and arrange meeting with investors, potential partners, universities, trade organizations and site selection consultants. We research trends and global developments in various industries, and our focus is always to provide measurable results.
