Who Are We?

 

The Turkish American Chamber of Commerce of the Southeast United States (TACC-Southeast) was founded in 2007 as a self-supporting, non-profit organization in Atlanta, Georgia by a group professionals to facilitate commerce between the U.S. and Turkey and to establish partnerships between Turkish and American business people.

 

TACC-Southeast conducts deep industry and market research in Atlanta and other nearby industry-focused cities such as Miami, Orlando, Tallahassee, Birmingham, Memphis, and Charlotte. Our purpose is to discover trade and investment opportunities and to provide effective market entrance strategies.

 

Additionally, TACC-Southeast consults with American business men & women who are seeking opportunities in Turkey, which has one of the fastest growing economies in the world, to render them able to establish their own business in the country. We also organize several special events such as Matchmaking Programs, Business and Student (Study Abroad) Trips, Global Executive Seminars and Turkish-American Business Summits.
