If you are looking for some inspiration for your business, visit the new PARIS REGION CHANNEL web TV at Paris Region Channel and discover the Paris Region Economic Development Agency’s bilingual channel. I’ve spent an interesting hour browsing the videos on economic affairs and learning a bit more about the Paris business scene.
The channel offers a platform to entrepreneurs, both local and foreign, who are movers and shakers in the Paris Region. If you want to expand into Europe, check it out for coverage and interviews of major French groups and SMEs, as well as of foreign companies established within the Paris Region. You will soon be able to watch over 30 programs about local and business topics.
Paris Region Channel is part of the region’s Economic Development Agency’s overall digital strategy to let people know about the full range of the regional economy’s potential using innovative tools.
Alongside the video channel there is also a business magazine, sector-specific regular features, a Twitter info stream, viral communication campaigns, and a well-stocked photo library.
This will all make it much easier if you want to research expansion or doing business with companies based in the region. You can get input on seeking premises and employees, fiscal and legal advice, identifying commercial and R&D partners, conducting promotional initiatives with the media, and supplying practical day-to-day information.
In 2010, the Paris Region launched 243 projects (business creations, extensions and acquisitions) that will ultimately generate over 8,400 jobs for the region’s economy. Overall, the Paris Region receives more than 30% of the foreign companies that get established in France every year.
