COLLIER COUNTY TO WELCOME FRENCH DELEGATION FOR ECONOMIC TRADE MISSION

Collier County will host its fifth inbound trade mission with France next week, when French 3D printing startup Z3DLab and business consulting and management company EZYPERF2 arrive to seek clients, investors and partners in a quest to expand to the United States and Collier County.

Four companies, including two others who will participate through online conferencing, will participate in a four-day, in-depth business and economic development workshop organized by Naples Accelerator President and CEO Marshall Goodman. A press conference followed by a welcome by Collier County Board of County Commissioners Chairman Penny Taylor will kick off the event at 8:15 a.m. on Monday, April 24, at the Naples Accelerator, 3510 Kraft Road, Naples, Florida 34105.

Collier County’s Office of Business and Economic Development and the Naples Accelerator have focused on foreign trade, building a strong relationship with France’s RETIS organization, a government-funded incubator network.

“Our last four outbound missions have established Collier County as a serious partner in the accelerator business, which has opened doors that no other U.S. agency has entered,” said Office of Business and Economic Development Director Jace Kentner.

The companies come from Val d’Oise Technopole, an incubator in north central France. Collier County is in talks with several French companies interested in moving into the accelerator, which houses French startup Strategies Without Borders, a consulting firm that helps overseas businesses enter the United States market.
