In Saint-Pierre, on the island of La Réunion, AlphaTech was recently created in the Techsud park. This is a brand new space dedicated to entrepreneurs and innovation partners. It was inaugurated on February 3, 2019 in the presence of, among others, Daniel Ramsamy, the president of the Technopole de La Réunion.
AlphaTech: making Technopole’s presence felt
This new space will be located in the Alpha building. With an area of 1850 m2, it is located not far from the environmental monitoring station and the IUT. In addition, it should be noted that the purpose of this space is to encourage collaboration. In addition, AlphaTech aims to respond to the changing work patterns and needs of students, researchers and entrepreneurs. This orientation and information centre also makes the Technopole’s presence more concrete for those who are looking for support.
Locating your business in AlphaTech
AlphaTech also has offices available for rent by the hour, half-day, day or week. In addition, some open space is available as well as flexible conference rooms. Jérôme Beaudemoulin, the person in charge of TechSud, also points out that those who want to set up their company in the area have the opportunity to do so. TechSud is the second technology park on the island, which was established 10 years ago. Daniel Ramsamy adds that the objective of the Technopole is to attract start-ups and innovative companies.
Incubation and coworking at the Technopole
And speaking of business locations, Ingrid Violeau, an entrepreneur in the field of professional training, has domiciled her company in AlphaTech. According to her, it is practical because it allows her to rent spaces according to her needs. For example, she explains that it allows her to rent a meeting room, which brings credibility with clients. And coworking seems to be another highlight of this innovative new space. Indeed, another entrepreneur, Romain Pagès, based at the Technopole for a year and a half, shares the same opinion. He adds that it allows him to meet other entrepreneurs at the coffee machine.
The TechSud ecosystem
The unique TechSud ecosystem offers various services such as company registration. Moreover, those who are domiciled there can benefit from receiving mail and parcels without a warrant. Among its many advantages, it also offers secure document storage, customer reception and meeting room rental.
A soft landing in the south
This new workspace is part of a plan to bring innovation to the south, specifically to Saint-Pierre. Thus, support services are available for companies or innovation professionals. These allow for a “soft landing”. So it’s about logistics. That is, access to offices and IT services, but also connections with companies and partners. Specialized solutions are also on the agenda, notably through meetings with experts and specialized advisors.
