In our newsletters, you see evidence of our good work in the events and deals that are announced. What you don’t see is the behind the scenes work that goes into the matchmaking and mentoring our staff and volunteers do every day to support business transactions and investments being made between and by American and Israeli companies that are benefiting both economies.
This activity is really the heart and soul of AICC, and it doesn’t get much public attention, mostly out of respect to confidentiality requested by the commercial entities. At a recent meeting of our Executive Committee, we reviewed the activity report showing over 100 active projects in various stages of development. Frankly, we were amazed at the breadth and scope of this activity that is producing jobs and investments for both the Southeast and Israel. It takes constant nurturing to push these potential deals over the goal line.
In each newsletter, we give four examples—really teasers—of “Israeli Companies Contacting Us”. This is just the tip of the iceberg!
