ASCAME is the most important representative of the Mediterranean private sector, by defending the interests of more than 300 Chambers of Commerce and similar institutions. Its main goals are to enhance cooperation and economic exchange in the Mediterranean region, promote synergies between these countries, encourage international cooperation and promote regional and international economic activities to build long-term development.
“Following our test period, we’re excited to fully deploy our partnership with Gazelle.ai. It will be of interest for our members and above all to the final users: companies. Gazelle.ai will help them identify growth opportunities and prospective clients and partners around the world,” says Mr. Zibaoui, General Coordinator of ASCAME. “The unique AI capabilities of Gazelle.ai tell us which companies, industries and strategic clusters are expanding and therefore our members, the Chambers of Commerce of the Mediterranean, can engage and support existing companies, start-ups and SMEs, by accelerating their international business and innovation”.
Therefore, this partnership goes hand in hand with ASCAME’s daily work to foster entrepreneurship. After all, the only way to overcome the current socio-economic crisis is to invest in the future: there are positive trends taking place across the Mediterranean region, such as the value growth of start-ups, that bring about jobs, innovation and much-needed skills. ASCAME and Gazelle.ai have joined forces to capitalise on these trends and identify opportunities that will benefit the Mediterranean’s private sector and all its people.
Steven Jast, Gazelle.ai President and Founder, notes that “we are thrilled to be partnering with ASCAME, as we know this partnership will help many companies in the Mediterranean find new business development opportunities around the world. In addition, we look forward to collaborating with ASCAME to gather intelligence on industry sectors and markets that are influencing corporate expansion in Mediterranean countries.”
