Although 2018 will be the best year yet, 2017 has been pretty amazing for Architect-US! We are letting you in on our behind-the-scenes…

It is not only the companies Architect-US works with which have turned 2017 into a magical year, here are some more reasons.

1. One More Year of Making People Happy

We are so thankful to say that 2017 has been a great year for us! Thanks to all of you – participants, potentials, partners, companies, friends, and public – we are growing every day, learning new things and improving in order to make your adventures even better.

We love what we do – we love to see your smiles, as each of you leaves a footprint not only on our databases (haha!) but in our hearts as well because we spend hours and hours figuring out how to make your dreams come true! You give us a purpose and that’s what sets Architect-US apart from the rest – we form a connection with you and aim to make everything as easy and as wonderful as possible for you!

2. International Reach

Our resolution for 2018 is to keep growing and improving so we can offer you a complete and perfect service. This year we’ve helped more than 100 participants from more than 25 nationalities and from (almost) all continents. Our favorite participants to work with are from:

Argentina, India, Portugal, Brazil, Israel, Russia, Canada, Italy, Spain, China, Lebanon, Sweden, Croatia, Mexico, UK, France, Poland, Vietnam and many more, of course…

Thanks to this technological time we are living in, we can reach even remote countries and we are still amazed every time we get contacted by new nationalities we didn’t suspect would know us! It’s an honor sponsoring people from around the world and giving them the opportunity to learn the American way. Breaking down cultural barriers it what we wish to continue doing as we believe it is the key to a better world.
