Testimonials

PDG de Xaga
“Olivier Perrin worked with Xaga in 2008 for its development on the North American market with its governance platform. Was it reasonable for a small business with a high potential to start this project? As the CEO, I answered yes while being aware of the risks, knowing it would not be easy but also that it would have a major and positive influence on the development of the Xaga solution, managing our projects and development. Thanks to Olivier Perrin, we were able to meet over two years in Canada a hundred of people from various backgrounds. The Xaga platform improved from these meetings. Not surprisingly, this experience required a lot of perseverance and energy, be it for Alsago or Xaga. There as been questionings. Alsago’s organized approach always guided our actions to complete each step one by one. All this contributed to an operational implementation in the US in 2014. We are actively keeping the contact with Alsago’s friendly and dynamic team to realize other projects in Canada and in the US very soon.”
Yann Xoual, CEO, Xaga Group
Vice President of SILICOM LABS
“Alsago accompanies us since 2011 for our development in North America.
Beyond their professionalism, their availability and their kindness, they managed to fit us in the “microcosm” of Montreal, as well as spreading our name in North America by taking several key initiatives: we made thanks to them the cover of the 1st global magazine of our field in the US.
All of this has been done in the perspective of our short-term implantation in Canada.
This implementation is planned for 2015, and I am pleased to entrust to Olivier and his team the steering of the scalability of this future branch, because I have full confidence in his loyalty.”
Joel Korsakissok, Vice President, Silicom Labs
Président & COO bluenove Group 
“As President Founder of bluenove, I really want to thank the Olivier Perrin’s intuition and his team for having contacted us in 2010 as we were developing in France our company created in 2008. Alsago identified us by estimating that we had a potential for development in Canada and they accompanied us to mobilize the help of funding from the Coface. Background work was carried out by Alsago teams in order to clear out this new territory in terms of business opportunities, partnerships and talents who were likely to join bluenove. I particularly liked the ‘Coaching’ dimension they brought us in moments of doubt and impatience, by motivating us to be persistent and to keep the distance for this long-term project.”
Martin Duval, President & COO, bluenove
“Supported by Alsago Entrepreneurs from A to Z in the rise of Unterval in Canada, we have co-developed in 3 years a structured and sustainable business model by organizing 7 France-Canada missions in the Audiovisual / Cinema / Video Games / Virtual Reality industries. 70 French companies participated in our B2B missions to build up partnerships (co-productions, pre-sales) with Canadian film, audiovisual and video game firms.
Alsago has brought us its skills in terms of approaching the market, establishing contacts with professionals and building up our project, not to mention its ability to manage the administrative formalities of the implementation of the company.
This transition phase allowed us, as Unterval France, to adapt, to structure and to internationalize to become Unterval Canada.

In 2017, we are officially implemented and mature to develop our projects on solid foundations and continue to rely on Alsago for the launch of new challenges in other sectors of activity.
