SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Entrepreneur Sebastien Eckersley-Maslin has embarked on a bold and unusual business challenge. On October 1st, he set out on a whirlwind 12-day world tour, encompassing Tokyo, Paris, London, New York, with the last stop being San Francisco, in an attempt to create the smallest multinational in the world.
On the tour Sebastien is championing the cause of Oneforone Group. Oneforone gives people a socially conscious choice when making a purchase by donating a similar product on a one-for-one basis to an individual of need in an impoverished local or international community. Sebastien is sharing his experiences as he attempts to complete this unusual challenge, live at: www.smallestmultinational.com.
Sebastien's bid is supported by Australian global serviced and virtual office provider Servcorp, whose combination of superior business, IT and communications infrastructure and world class corporate offices allow entrepreneurs to build their businesses anywhere – and everywhere – in the world.
Sebastien is no stranger to challenges. For the past decade he has been balancing the demands of a full time Naval career (including duty in Iraq), a Masters in Engineering and running small innovative businesses including building a successful company in seven days, with just $500 startup capital.
"In today's business world, you don't have to be big to be big and I aim to prove it. This is a great example of an Aussie business punching above its weight on the global stage," Eckersley-Maslin said.
As part of celebrating his epic journey, local small businesses are invited to meet Sebastien at San Francisco's Epic Roasthouse, located at 369 The Embarcadero, on Monday, October 11th from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. to hear about his travels, challenges and successes. Sebastien will highlight information about the entrepreneurs people he meets at this event on his blog and Twitter feed.
To commemorate his success, the sponsors, Servcorp, will be giving attendees who shake hands with Sebastien the opportunity to try a virtual office package, which can be used remotely or with the launch of their new office at the prestigious California 101, located in the heart of San Francisco's Financial District.
