President's Letter | September 2018

Dear SACC-NE Community,



With the summer almost over, schools open, and the Swedish elections leaving much open for debate on the world stage, I’m pleased to share with you some announcements from our end as well! As you may have seen in our previous emails, we will be hosting our Annual Meeting this Thursday, September 13th from 6pm at 50 Milk Street, Boston. During our Annual Meeting, we will highlight what we did in the 2017 – 2018 year as well as introduce to you the program we’re planning for the upcoming year followed by networking. 


After having spent a lot of time and energy over the last few years developing a powerful platform comprised of some of Sweden and New England’s most recognized partners, we are working hard to develop programs, experiences, and events designed to introduce you to more meaningful connections and opportunities. We are also looking to bring more fun and engagement to our organization while fulfilling our mission of continuously promoting trade, innovation, and business relationships between Sweden and the United States.


I would additionally like to take this opportunity to welcome several new Corporate Members to the SACC-NE community, whom you will be hearing more from! These include Axis Communications, Hästens, Fjällräven, Boda Borg, Sweden’s Consulate to New York, and IceBug! We are thrilled to expand our network with some of Sweden’s most celebrated brands, and in the coming months, will share with you new SACC-NE Membership benefits and discounts. 


With a new program, members and projects in line, we are naturally expanding our team and are excited to introduce you to our new Trainee Jacob Karaduman and returning Intern Douglas von Rosen. In the next newsletter, we'll be introducing the team’s new additions - so stay tuned! 


I encourage you to read the rest of our September newsletter, which includes invitations to our upcoming events, a spotlight story on our Summer 2018 SACC-NE ACCELERATE Internship, a fun video our Hult International Business School interns made this summer putting a light spin on difficult-to-pronounce Swedish words, and your weekly fix of what's current as far as Swedish-American news goes.


Thank you for reading and wish to see you in the near future (maybe even at the upcoming Euro Networking Cocktail?) !  


At your service,

Christina Björnström

President, SACC-NE
