Here at the Belgian Trade Commission, San Francisco, we build bridges between Wallonia and the United States; facilitating the flow of innovation between Walloon companies wishing to expand internationally, and U.S. companies contemplating a move to Wallonia.
As a public organization, the Belgian Trade Commission is committed to jump-starting the international future of Walloon companies, at no cost to you.
HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM US
We offer a prime working location in our downtown San Francisco office, where you’re welcome to work for up to three months. If you require a longer stay, we can cover part of your costs to work from incubators in San Francisco and the Silicon Valley.
The Explort program will match your company with talented young Belgian students or graduates who will spend several months learning the ropes from you, before being sent abroad to perform market research or an independent project at your request.
We’ve cultivated a diverse network of contacts in San Francisco and the Silicon Valley, making it easier for you to meet the right people in your industry from the moment you step off the plane.
If you make the leap and set up an office in the United States (whether in San Francisco, the Silicon Valley, or elsewhere) we can provide you with financial support towards the cost of your office, operating expenses, and salaries.
