Entrants must offer a commercially viable product or a service that is on the American market and demonstrates the ability to generate revenues.
“We are proud to celebrate the 10th year of The French-American Entrepreneurship Award, and our history of honoring and supporting ambitious entrepreneurs who are breaking into the highly competitive American market,” said Anne Busquet, Executive Director of FAEA.
The first-place winner receives a cash prize of $10,000 and both the first and second place winners receive: coaching from CCE Dreamstart; a fully furnished office space in New York City for six months provided by Corporate Suites; a one year membership to the French-American Chamber of Commerce; while receiving bountiful media appearance and media coverage opportunities.
