Greetings from Patrik Melander, Chairman SACC Dallas - Fort Worth,

Dear SACC Austin, Dallas, Houston and Texas friends,
A belated Happy New Year, I hope you all have had a good start on the new decade. Here at SACC Texas we are in full swing, already having conducted the Swedish Semla After Work in Austin as well as an Euro Tech Talk event about Cyber Security in Dallas . Now in February the entrepreneurs program takes off with a bang on February 20 with the SACC Dallas - Start Up World CupThis is actually the first time Texas has managed to be included in this global competition, and it is a great opportunity to get more global attention for our region. Key members of the Dallas startup ecosystem are partnering in this as Richardson is showing its support for the Texas startup ecosystem. The event will also feature The Mayor of Richardson.  Earlier the same day we will also host Sharpen your Influencer and Sales skills - facilitated by Per Cedergren, CEO and Managing Partner of Cimplement. Take a look at our event pages to make sure that you are not missing out of any of our other events.

Many of you have perhaps noticed that we have aligned with other chamber of commerce here in Dallas. Successful as it has been, we will continue doing so. One such joint venture will be what we have named Expat After Work Mingle, that we will co-host together with the
British American Business Council Texas , Finnish American Business Guild , French American Chamber of Commerce in Dallas and the German American Chamber of Commerce in Texas . If successful, we would like to organize this event on a more regular basis. Our ambition is that this event in the future could serve as an easy-to-access and fun mingle interaction between Europeans and Americans who work and do business in Texas. We hope it will be appreciated and attract a happy crowd. Therefore: Be sure to join us at Haywire restaurant in Plano on Thursday, March 5 and help us make this a success! The theme this premier event will be After Ski - so don't forget your favorite ski cap and ski goggles when joining Dallas best After Ski
