AmCham Breakfast

Conquering the US market:  creating or developing a business?

Thursday 4th of July 2013 at 8 :00 am

In the offices of the CCI in Strasbourg

10, place Gutenberg

Why would you set up your business in the US ?

out of a sense of taste, of pleasure, of adventure, or out of necessity ?


Where should you set up your business in the US ?

Boston, NYC, Chicago, Kansas City, San Francisco…  
distance, time zone differences, culture , weather, taxes, family and social life, recruitments…. The debate Passion against Reason.


How to set up a business in the US ?

By creating a 100% American company or a subsidiary of French Headquarters?  What implications when it comes to financing, helps, visas, valuation of the companies, company taxes…

To debate over these questions, two heads of Alsatian companies present on the US market will share their experience with us.


And an accounting expert specialized in the US will give us an overview of the «dos and don’ts»  in this market.

Patrick Frimat, CEO of RSI Video Technologies has chosen to move to Minnesota with his family in 2012  where a wholly-owned subsidiary of RSI Video Technologies France based in Strasbourg was created in 2005. This was a key decision in the success of  RSI in the USA. RSI Video Technologies developed a security product line to meet the needs of North America based upon the battery-powered wireless camera technology created in Europe and built the Videofied brand in the USA.

The turnover of RSI Video Technologies will reach close to $10 M this year, growing 50%.

Jean-Georges PERRIN, founder and CEO of GreenIvory, decided very soon after the start of his company , a software vendor specialized in tools for the press (magazines and newspapers), to be present in the USA, as he thought the market was there for his products. Six years later, he shares his time between his Haguenau headquarters and Durham in North Carolina where the American office is located. He will share with us his optimism on the development of his company thanks to the other side of "the pond", read the Atlantic.

The conference will be held in English. Do not hesitate to forward this invitation to anyone you think may be interested in this presentation.
