GATEWAY | THE STORY
Where it all began…
In 1906, the Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce in New York (SACCNY) opened up its doors as the first Swedish Chamber outside of Sweden. Since, it has developed into becoming the largest and most successful Swedish Chamber, with hundreds of business expansions to its name. In 2017, SACCNY re-evaluated what it meant to be a Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce, and what it meant to be a Chamber in the 21st Century.
The conclusion: We want to do more.
We love Sweden, We love USA.
Recent macro developments are trying to close-off the world. We want to open it wider. Sweden, and Swedes are remarkable in so many ways. The US and Americans are powerful, trailblazing and leading in so many others. We believe that in connecting people, companies and countries, we can work as a positive force in making the world more accessible.
We want to open the gate into the US market and encourage more companies to take the leap over the great pond, just like millions (yes, millions) of Swedes have done before us. We want Sweden to go global, and to spur US interest in Sweden.
To that end, we present Gateway.
Gateway is an international collaborative workspace, but it offers more than just meeting and office facilities. It is a place for builders to meet, network and grow — a place where ideas and businesses can thrive, a hub where Business Executives, Academia and prolific entrepreneurs can meet and exchange ideas, business know-how and contacts.
We believe in collaborations, we believe that sharing is caring, we believe in introductions, meetings, partnerships, making new friends, strong coffee and with the creation of the right ecosystem that we now have done more.
