In the framework of its international development, the Montreal-based start-up TRACTR, opens a new office in Bordeaux to support entrepreneurs and start-ups in their digital transformation.
From Montreal to Bordeaux to expand in the French market
At the same time as the company celebrated its
10th anniversary, TRACTR announced the opening in September 2018 of an
office in Bordeaux.
Specialised in the design and programming of web and mobile applications for start-ups and institutions, this location marks a new phase in the growth of the company.
The company is hoping to benefit from the economic vibrancy of the city and the region, in particular in the digital and entrepreneurial sector, to attract new international customers.
The technical department is to remain in Montreal for the present, while the sales department will be based in Bordeaux with three people.
Olivier Tarbès, founder and manager of TRACTR, tells us:
‘This opening marks a new step in the company’s growth. The location in Bordeaux is all the more significant as it represents a homecoming for Guillaume Commagnac, the head of the new office. Having worked to develop the company here in Montreal, he is now going to act as a local relay working in synergy with the teams in Canada. His in-depth knowledge of the local economic fabric and his experience in start-up communities both in Montreal and Bordeaux are real assets for us.’
Strategic expertise to create ergonomic platforms
In addition to cutting-edge technology which involves several professions and areas of expertise ranging from UX to front-end development and design, the French-Canadian company also provides a more agile and adapted approach to the reality of entrepreneurs.
The expertise of the TRACTR team is in perfect
synergy with players in the local ecosystem (business incubators, generators
and investors, etc.).
The company already has strong links with Montreal-based stakeholders, and Guillaume Commagnac is highly enthusiastic about this European opening.
‘The economic vibrancy of Bordeaux and the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region, in particular for start-ups, has a proven track record. Players such as French Tech Bordeaux and the various support structures have been extremely helpful to us. Now our aim is to fully integrate this momentum and the fist contacts we’ve made over the last weeks have been highly positive for us, all the more so given the constantly growing need for web and applicative development within the region.’
