Below you can find an overview over our services – for both EDOs and European investors.

FDI Trips


TBIC FDI Trips to Europe offer a unique opportunity to get in direct contact with main FDI stakeholders, multipliers and companies in Europe.

The TBIC represents a geographically diverse Membership in Europe. Paired with our Advisory Council and the TBIC staff, we serve as a valuable resource to companies looking to enter or expand in the U.S. market.

Community Network


The TBIC Community & Member Network offers a unique opportunity to become part of a dynamic and strong platform of U.S. Communities in Europe.

Country-Specific Competence


Even though the European Union maintains the biggest single market in the world, every member country still features its own unique business culture.

Community Events


Participate in key TBIC events, including our Inbound Delegations of European Investors, Annual Meeting and Conference, and Familiarization Tours.

Business Planning


Once the decision to set up production abroad has been made, writing a thorough business plan is key.  

European Office Representation


Just like foreign prospects who want to expand in the United States need a local representation, the economic development efforts of your organization in Europe benefit tremendously from a permanent European presence.

Regulatory & Legal Advice


Moving from the European to the American legal environment often proves challenging for European companies.

Mercator Service


With their business-readiness for Europe in mind, the TBIC will support your local businesses in determining the feasibility of their strategy for the world’s largest single market, the European Union.

U.S. Business Partners


Whether you are looking for potential customers, new distributors, or a joint venture partner, our Members will be able to point you in the right direction.


Site Selection Network


Finding the right location for your U.S. operation is paramount. But assessing the potential of 50 states and over 3,000 counties in the U.S. is a challenge.


Visa Services


When your business across the Atlantic grows, being able to send stakeholders abroad and have them transition between the United States and Europe without friction becomes essential.


Executive Search

Building your Facility


The TBIC not only brings together strong communities and the experts from our Advisory Council, but also encompasses Corporate Members, including some of the most experienced construction and design companies that regularly work together with European companies entering the U.S. market.
