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.
