This movement from France to the US is at the heart of CDC's investment. The investor is the largest public investment fund in France, through the national bank. Caisse des Dépôts historically invests in companies it sees as expanding and strengthening the economic future of France. They bring a number of things to the table, apart from legitimacy and the symbolic importance of the government investing in the company, they loan a number of their skills, services, and networking help to companies they invest in.
The most exciting development enabled by this new financing is the completion and expansion of BAP's LINK platform, which offers tools to manage all aspects of operating and maintaining a coworking space. The platform, scheduled for launch in 2017, will enable coworking spaces on its marketplace to scale their business across multiple locations and retain a top-notch experience for their tenants without significant staff increases.
The LINK platform allows space operators to view the current individuals who are located within a space: at any given time, a remote operator can see the number of occupants in a location, their total amount of space available, and better analyze peak hours - all through wifi logins. Furthermore, the technology can allow a single manager to handle all advanced reservations, billing, and contracts through a single platform. Link allows a manager or managers to edit and change contracts as need be without the painful process of going through a PDF editor; instead it has built-in tools to allow a contract to be shifted in multiple ways through a simple drag-and-drop process that can be used for any number of needs.
About Share Your Office / Bureaux A Partager
Now serving over 2,000 active locations, Bureaux A Partager was founded in Paris in late 2012, when CEO Clement Alteresco was looking for new offices for his consultancy, Fabernovel. Alteresco had spent several years in San Francisco, where he had helped to found Parisoma, one of the city's first coworking spaces. Back in Paris, Alteresco realized that startups in the growing French tech ecosystem needed real estate flexibility, so he built a marketplace to connect companies that had spare office space with young startups looking for desks with flexibility. As the company has grown, they've expanded their platform to offer more self-service features.
