“GABA succeeds very well in strengthening the German-American community and friendship. Through their hosting of excellent events, members can share top-notch industry specific knowledge and experience across the Atlantic and connect as professionals and personally. I am thankful to GABA for wonderful memories of events, business opportunities, and even friendships that I could experience and access through the incredible network which they cultivate.”

Alexander Roth, Partner at Taylor Wessing US

“GABA had a big influence on how my life developed in Silicon Valley. The day I arrived at SFO I went to the GABA Young Professionals meeting. I connected with many people but one connection was special… my wife found her job with eBay through this connection. – Since then, I have attended many more GABA events, and all of them were interesting and useful for my business and me personally.”

Florian Schöbinger, Kärcher New Ventures

“Newly arrived in Silicon Valley, we participated at a GABA-Newcomers event. Driven by the enthusiasm of the GABA team, we participated in many other events from GABA and its partners, which are offered in every industrial sector. These great networking opportunities largely contributed to our exponential growth in the number of contacts in the USA and in Europe. GABA has been great for developing both friendships and our business.”
