Global Access Program


Officially launched in January 2014, our Global Access Soft Landing program grew out of our partnership with the French-American Chamber of Commerce, Philadelphia Chapter.

We are a  U.S. State Department designated sponsor organization for J-1 Trainees. Learn more about the program and how you can apply!

About the Program

The mission of this program is to support local job creation by attracting Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), fostering entrepreneurship, and cultivating international economic synergies.

Global Access serves the following stakeholders:

  • Foreign companies ready to explore and invest in the U.S. market
  • Entrepreneurial individuals preparing to launch their own business
  • Researchers eager to develop and pilot new technologies
  • Graduate students committed to staying in the U.S. to develop their own ventures

Global Access combines immigration solutions with cultural education, technical assistance, and business development to deliver a comprehensive solution for foreign nationals.
