OuiStart, THE 1ST SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA FRENCH-AMERICAN BUSINESS CENTER TO OPEN IN SAN DIEGO

(San Diego, CA, December 6Th, 2017)

The San Diego French-American Chamber of Commerce (SDFACC) is proud to announce the launch of OuiStart (www.ouistartsandiego.com), the first French-American Southern California business center located at 8525 Gibbs Drive in the golden triangle of San Diego. Centrally located, OuiStart opened its doors early October to welcome international and US entrepreneurs under one roof, providing an ecosystem that caters to business collaboration between France and the US.

Covering the full import-export spectrum of products and services between France (5th largest economy in the world) and the United States through San Diego as a port of entry, the budget-conscious OuiStart infrastructure provides a bridge to transatlantic businesses and commercial interaction.

“With the new French government, labor laws are becoming friendlier to entrepreneurship. Moreover, with a, strong euro currency, the French market becomes incredibly attractive to American companies, presenting an opportunity that too few middle-sized US companies are taking advantage of”, declares Christophe Fremont, President of the Board of the SDFACC. “Conversely, the American market remains the largest market in the world and a great opportunity for French businesses to expand their activity in a very business friendly atmosphere in every step of the way”. OuiStart, is the perfect enabler for all these companies as it provides a flexible, newly renovated, amenity-rich office space, with meeting rooms and workspace solutions starting at as little as at $30 a day. Being immersed in a multi-cultural business environment will greatly facilitate French American businesses to overcome the roadblock that any company invariably faces when establishing offices in foreign country!

OuiStart offers a business friendly office environment. Together with the strong SDFACC network, it regroups professionals and services that will assist startups and more established businesses with little knowledge of American business practices or of the French market. The entrepreneur electing residence in OuiStart will benefit from more than 25 years of experience of the chamber, its extensive network and its expertise in guiding them in their venture, every step of the way to success.

“OuiStart will offer enough desks for about 20 professionals”, says Gilles Bonkoski, Managing Director of the SDFACC (www.france-sandiego.org).The desks will come fully equipped to enable entrepreneurs to concentrate on getting their business off the road on their new territory from the get go”.
