Club 600, a private club of French-speaking entrepreneurs and CEOs in New York, has been promoting the exchange of ideas, experiences, and practices for more than 30 years. All while developing strong friendships, business relationships and many business ventures.

Club 600 created the French American Entrepreneurship Award (FAEA) with the aim of supporting French entrepreneurs in the United States and as a way of giving back to the French business community.

Since 2008, the FAEA has been committed to fostering the awareness and development of high potential early-stage startups founded and/or led by French entrepreneurs in the United States.
