The French-American Creative Lab is a 10-day intensive program for startups from the cultural and creative industries willing to expand into the US market in the next 12 to 24 months. The purpose of this immersion into the New York and Los Angeles landscape is to help French entrepreneurs adapt their products or services to the American consumer and define a marketing strategy for the US market, as well as establish contacts and networks to prepare for the product launch in the United States.
Besides workshops and trainings sessions, a significant amount of time is dedicated to one-on-one business meetings. Many networking events throughout the program present opportunities for startups to promote their projects and develop their business network.
