Find your new business partners

What we offer

We will carry out a primary market study and find potential clients, distributors or other business partners for you. We will help you with the organization of your business engagements (meetings, travels, accommodation) and provide translation during your negotiations. We will arrange a draft, translation and legal verification of your contracts. During the ongoing business transaction, you will be represented by our contact person present in France. We will also provide translations of your websites and information/marketing materials and take care of on-line marketing (realization of campaigns on Facebook, Twitter, Google+), which will also help to increase your visibility on the French market. We are partners of French-Czech Chamber of Commerce.

 

Why expand to France

With 65 million inhabitants, France is the fifth largest economy in the world (GDP: € 35.960 / person - INSEE 2016). It is the third most attractive European market in terms of foreign investment (after Germany and England). The startup ecosystem under the French Tech flag is one of the most active in the World in terms of number of startups and venture capital. With an average net monthly salary of € 2238 (INSEE 2016), the French market has an extremely high purchasing potential. Last but not least, with more than 80 million visiting tourists per year France is the most visited tourist destination in the world! This permanently increases the attractiveness of the French market and creates new possibilities for further expansion.

Who we are

  • Ondřej Svoboda

    Co-founder

    In 2001 I moved to France to complete my secondary school studies at Lycée Carnot in Dijon. After that, I graduated from Grenoble School of Management and, based in Zurich, worked for five and half years as internal auditor for Adecco. During that first significative work experience I obtained two professional certifications: CIA (Certified Internal Auditor) and FP&A (Certified Corporate Financial Planning & Professional Analysis). After five and half years in various control activities in EMEA countries and with the benefit of my dual cultural outlook and network, I now accompany Czech & French companies and projects in creating beneficial synergies.

    We founded French Commece with David Dvorak in 2015. After five years we decided to pursue different directions. Since then I integrated the brand and the activity under a French company Start in France SAS.
