About us

WHO WE ARE

FACC Los Angeles is a California registered 501c3 organization, previously known as FACC Pacific Coast which was founded in 1968.  

Driven by membership fees and donations, and supported by a group of growth-minded Finnish and American individuals, companies, and organizations, the members of FACC Los Angeles all share a common interest to promote business relations between Finland and the US in order to create commercial opportunities that benefit both regions. 

 

If you are looking to establish a business in the US, we can help in a plethora of ways. From assisting you in your initial business visits, to connecting you with relevant professionals in various fields, FACC Los Angeles can help you in your global networking efforts. 

OUR MISSION 

The mission of the Finnish American Chamber of Commerce Los Angeles is to help you achieve your goals:  

  • By promoting your business through FACC-LA network, media channels, website, social media, and at our events.

OUR VISION

We believe in building a strong community that shares expertise, helps others, and gets help in return. Covid-19 pandemic has shown that values need to be changed from egoism to pluralism, from creed to purpose, and from cruelty to empathy. As consumers have moved increasingly online demanding authenticity, there are new opportunities for innovative minds that cherish collaboration and stand for, listen to, and support each other in order to succeed together. Our vision is to be part of this new world and make it better by acting instead of reacting, by understanding instead of judging, and actively engaging instead of passively complaining. We are truly all in this together.
