Jean Gabriel Tordjman, Director and founder of Cinéma Scène Production, said:
“Bordeaux Invest was the first partner to answer the call”.
“When you arrive in a new area, this initial contact is essential: it is thanks to Bordeaux Invest that I was able to find the Darwin site. Not only is this place perfect for my business, but Darwin also holds events to which we will bring our expertise.”
François-Xavier Gardère, Director of BlueCub, said:
“Bordeaux Invest accelerated our set-up”.
“BGI helped us to set up in the region by finding us premises, at Galerie Tatry, 170 cours du Médoc in Bordeaux. Although we had numerous requirements relating to the set-up of our showroom and service centre, they did a great job and also provided us with rooms during our recruitment phases.”
Florence Aleixandre, head of the Bordeaux centre SUPEXAM, said:
“Bordeaux Invest never gives up”.
“I turned to Bordeaux Invest get a clear vision of my economic sector locally. I was given targeted and relevant information. I also received significant support when searching for premises. The constraints of the project were considerable: standards for public facilities, disabled access, the need to be close to the Faculty of Medicine… Managers at Bordeaux Invest never give up! If we finally found a site which was suitable to our requirements, it is largely thanks to them.”
Marie-Luce Saillard, Co-Director ALBEA, said:
“BGI is well-referenced in Spain”.
“Bordeaux Invest is a well-regarded name in Spain and we had no problem reaching them to ask for information and advice before coming to Bordeaux. They helped us find a location that suited our business. They also provided us with contacts for the main institutions with which we could work. The next phase is networking with local businesses…”
Benoit Paillard, a PhD and engineer in charge of the new branch K-EPSILON, said:
“Our business is highly technical. Bordeaux Invest was able to appreciate the interest of the project, define its contours and immediately identify the players in the region which would be interesting for us to meet: today all these contacts have borne fruit.”
François Petitet, majority shareholder of Herbéo, researcher and PhD in Pharmacy, said:
“Bordeaux Invest is a valuable intermediary for the project leader”.
“Bordeaux Invest is a focal point for the key players in the area. It is an ideal reference for establishing businesses: connections come with speed and efficiency.”
Samuel Dangoumau, Sales Engineer, said:
“Bordeaux Invest has enabled us to meet with key industry stakeholders.”
“Bordeaux Invest referred us to important potential customers and key players in our sectors of interest. In terms of energy for example, we were put in contact with the indispensable WindCluster Aquitaine.”
