About the European American Investment Council:

The European American Investment Council (EAIC) provides an effective platform for local and regional economic development organizations (EDOs) to market themselves to potential investors from Europe, by means of a widely distributed membership and conferences designed to connect EDOs to potential investors and multipliers. 

European Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) has become one of the most important sources of manufacturing job growth in the U.S. It is still challenging for most EDOs to attract these investments to their communities.

The EAIC bridges the gap between EDOs and European investors searching for a location in the U.S. Our Advisory Council consists of Site Selectors, Consulting Firms and other advisers who are experienced with FDIs. They know exactly what European investors are looking for and what information they need in order to decide where to invest. The multilingual and well-connected team of the EAIC is ready to boost your community’s success among European investors.

StateBook for Site Selection
Site selectors may confidentially search and compare locations by county, MSA or EDO, and create detailed reports using StateBook's data aggregated from dozens of reliable, independent, third-party databases. Site Selectors may also anonymously contact EDOs directly through StateBook to ask questions and request additional information.

StateBook for EDO's
EDOs who join as StateBook Members may upload their own information, photos and more to communicate the unique benefits of their region to site selectors, complimenting the robust, independent StateBook Stats and data tools. Since more than 90% of site selection decisions are made online, before an EDO is ever contacted, StateBook provides a powerful tool to state your case - even before you know your region is being considered for investment.
