Europe Made Easy -- Partech Shaker to Help Tech Companies' Landing & Growth in Europe

PARIS, FRANCE--(Marketwired - April 06, 2016) - Partech Shaker, the campus for growth launched by Partech Ventures, today announced "Europe Made Easy," a new service to help foreign tech businesses enter the European market.

The service is designed to help companies better understand the European legal & business landscape, allowing them to avoid common pitfalls and reducing their time to market. The service will give access to a curated network of reliable experts in various fields such as HR, legal, finance or accounting and a global bank.

Among the partners are the US HR startup Hired (for tech talents), the global HR network Agelium (for country managers & sales teams), the bank BNP Paribas, the French startup Mercurr, whose mission is to help companies grow worldwide, the global law firm Orrick and a network of independent experts in finance, tax & subsidies as well as a few public players such as Paris&Co, the economic development and innovation agency of Paris and Business France.

This service comes in addition to the Shaker's state of the art and flexible office-as-a-service, available in the heart of Paris. Companies benefiting from the service will be able to work along some of the best American & European startups, including Dropbox, Pinterest, HotelTonight, Seevibes, Influans, Kantox, and Kartable. Additionally, the Partech Shaker brings a powerful business network to its resident entrepreneurs, helping them connect with leading established companies from many industries, digital experts & prestigious schools.

French serial entrepreneur Bertrand Diard, co-founder of Talend, chose the Partech Shaker to launch his new venture, Influans. "France has the best engineers and there is more loyalty for talents here than in the US. For these reasons, Paris has become the best place in Europe to work on your product, said Bertrand Diard, co-founder of Influans. "At the Partech Shaker, we benefit from a great work environment which helps Influans for building disruption with our technology, develop a strong company culture and retain key talent."

Even larger companies benefit from the Shaker's incredible list of services: "The Partech Shaker has far exceeded my expectations of a coworking space," said Matt Thorne, Head of IT for Pinterest.

"The Partech Shaker is a unique place in France, which gathers promising startups, large corporations as well as international tech companies like Dropbox, who are contributing to the current digital revolution, said Philippe Plichon, CEO of Dropbox France. "It is a very good choice to develop your business in EMEA."

"Partech Shaker has proved to be a great environment to host our French office," said Amir Segall, VP International at HotelTonight. "Not only has it provided us access to a broad range of like-minded companies and individuals, but the understanding and flexibility the Partech team can provide companies like HotelTonight at different stages of growth cannot be understated."

"We are proud to leverage the ecosystem Partech Shaker has built to help foreign companies grow their business in Europe, starting with France. Paris is now the first European city for the number of Fortune 500's headquarters, the first European country for Innovation and has a more vibrant tech scene than ever, with more than 12,000 startups." said Nicolas El Baze, General Partner, Partech Ventures.

The Partech Shaker was awarded the third place by French LifeStyle webzine MerciAlfred in its famous "Best Place To Work" ranking last January. The place already has a great hall of fame with companies like Sigfox, PriceMatch (acquired by Booking.com), Dropbox, Pinterest, Hotel Tonight, Sunrise (acquired by Microsoft), Kantox and Breaz (acquired by Hired).
