Bordeaux attracts young professionals looking to establish themselves for a variety of reasons. For one, this large French city is exciting, lively, and increasingly dynamic. Things are constantly changing in Bordeaux. The economy is resilient due to this juxtaposition between old and new. While Bordeaux has traditionally been reliant on its agriculture, fishing, wine, and tourism, the economy has become increasingly diverse in recent years with rising aeronautic, electronic, and telecommunication industries. The majority of Bordeaux’s entrepreneurs congregate around the Bordeaux Entrepreneurs group with many of them being seen hustling at the city’s coworking spaces as well.
Speaking of coworking spaces, Bordeaux’s are as fine as the city itself. Free coffee, synergistic business opportunities, and an opportunity to bounce from being in your own bubble to collaborating with others are all common offerings by local spaces. While Bordeaux’s startup environment is not yet as developed as the scene in Paris, Bordeaux has a much lower cost of living. Hiring can also be done inexpensively as there are many recent graduates from Bordeaux’s excellent universities that are looking for work. Bordeaux’s location is convenient in that it’s just a few hours away from Paris too.
Perhaps more than anything else, however, Bordeaux shines in its work/life balance. The oceanic climate offers warm long summers along with easily tolerable winters. The city is also a pleasure to walk through, especially the historic part of the city that’s made the UNESCO World Heritage List. Whether you’re discussing business or just chatting with friends, time flies by during a stroll through the city. Bordeaux hosts several music festivals each year adding to the fun. Coworking in Bordeaux offers access to a robust economy along with an impressive plethora of leisure options.
