Who we are
The American-German Business Club eV (AGBC) was founded in Bonn in 1964, then the capital city of West Germany. 30 years later, in 1994, the American-German Business Club Frankfurt e.V. was founded. It, and the Munich Chapter, are the two largest AGBC chapters in Germany, each with several hundred members, corporate and individual.
Several U.S. Consulates General have been major supporters of this all-volunteer, non-profit organization at its numerous different chapters throughout Germany (Frankfurt, Heidelberg, Kaiserslautern, Munich). We are a non-partisan networking club discussing up-to-date political and business issues. English is the language of our Club.
Our group was started to help solidify and improve American-German relationships on both a business and personal level. We welcome all nationalities who speak English.
We aim to bring together American and German business, support start-up, mid-size and corporate entrepreneurs.
We host thinkers, experts, political leaders from local, regional, country, and international venues, as well as world changers. We hope to foster our part in an integrated society and for businesses of the future.
We offer presentations and discussions on:
- Current events
- Review of International events in a non-partisan manner
- Transatlantic start-up communities
- New Industries in the digital era
