“ARDIE Bourgogne supported us with our expansion project, and in particular in putting together the application to Burgundy Regional Council for support for purchasing property. We managed to secure financial support equivalent to 10% of our total investment.”

“Recruiting and training quality staff in an environment that is right for family development are the keys for successfully achieving our customers’ complex projects. That is the competitive edge that Burgundy can provide for Atsukè at the gates of Paris and Lausanne.”
Damien BOUSSON, CEOAtsukè, specialists in mobile commerce solutions, Dijon
“We did not choose Beaune by chance. The town is ideally located at the crossroads of the main French motorways, in the heart of the Imagine Car customer area, close to the white zone for the snow season, and above all geographically in the middle of France.”

“The presence of a scientific and technical ecosystem in our area of activities triggered Burgundy as our choice. We have access to the skills brought together by the Vitagora competitive cluster and Agrosup Dijon. ARDIE Bourgogne as a facilitating organization opened up its network and provided us with new opportunities.”

“The support proposed by ARDIE Bourgogne means you can benefit from the opinion of an expert in intellectual property and define the strategy to be put in place with them. This contribution is very valuable because apart from checking whether our designs can be patented, upon receiving Mr Vinter’s report we had a complete round-up of the forces at work and the technological level of the domain.”

“Our approach in terms of sustainable development has focused on energy savings with the development of an innovative process for treating washing water, without discharge onto the public highway. Recently, we received financial support through ARDIE Bourgogne and were put in contact with Logomotion so as to develop a mobile, eco-design application for managing our activity that optimizes administrative work.”
François-Xavier DESERTOT, ManagerLe signe de l'environnement, Dijon-based company specialized in urban cleansing

“Being keen to work on a new approach to interior layout through eco-design, we brought in two experts: EVEA engineering consultants and the 10-6 DESIGN agency. They proposed full support by structuring our approach (identifying the challenges, communication, creativity, design, etc.). For this innovative project, ARDIE Bourgogne helped us to put together the financial application for ADEME Bourgogne and to fine-tune it over time.”
