About the German American Chamber of Commerce Inc., California Branch:
The German American Chamber of Commerce, California branch (GACC), located in San Francisco in direct proximity to Silicon Valley, is the official representative of German industry and trade and acts as a link between German and American companies and organizations. Due to its strategic location, the GACC focuses primarily on progressive industries such as renewable energies, biotechnology, nanotechnology, semiconductors and information technology. The GACC is the first point of contact for German companies interested in doing business in the U.S., particularly on the West Coast, providing support through a variety of services. The Chamber also organizes business events and political delegations designed to connect German decision-makers with their U.S. counterparts. The GACC’s goal is to bring German and American companies together, and in doing so, to foster, strengthen and advance bilateral trade between Germany and the U.S.
