It’s the world’s wine capital of the world — that alone would be reason enough for most of us to visit Bordeaux. Even if you’re the rare soul not interested in going on a wine tour or attending Vinexpo (the world’s premier wine exhibition), however, there are still lots of reasons Bordeaux should be on your radar.
For one, Bordeaux is home to no shortage of successful startups. Some examples include NewsRepublic and the world’s 1st successful social network for pets — Yummypets.
From wine startups to fintech, Bordeaux is a great place to establish your business because of its abundance of excellent coworking spaces and local accelerators.
Plus, did we forget to mention that Bordeaux has a HUGE university community of over 60,000 students? Cha-ching. $$$. For you that is.
This enormous university community makes it easy for you to grab local talent without killing your bootstrapping budget.
Finally, Bordeaux is an overall excellent lifestyle city. It’s a quiet port city that offers a peaceful lifestyle at prices Parisians can’t even dream of.
Bordeaux is also a city that is super open-minded. Regardless of your religion, sexual orientation, or political beliefs, others are unlikely to bother you about them.

Launched in 2016, Wigi Coworking Bordeaux is a coworking space created by its founder as a backlash to the dehumanization in companies taking precedence over the fundamentals of a working community — think cooperation, sharing of idea, and mutual aid.
In simpler terms, Wigi Coworking was designed to offer you a work environment that you would find inspiring rather than depressing. That’s right — no dimly lit cubicles or draconian punishments handed out over office politics.
Plus, there’s some really uplifting stuff going on at Wigi Coworking as well. Members of this space enjoy regular yoga sessions, board game competitions, and even discounted massages.
More than anything else, however, members say Wigi’s biggest draw is its coworking community. Not only are the people you’ll meet at this space inspiring; they’re also welcoming.
If you’re an introvert that quietly excels in your career but find yourself lacking friendships or professional relationships, Wigi Coworking is the perfect place to change that almost instantly.
“Nomade Bordeaux” (Nomadic Bordeaux), is a beautiful coworking space in central Bordeaux designed to be flexible for any use-case. Here are some examples:

— You need a place to pitch potential investors on your startup.
Of course, Nomade Bordeaux is also suitable for your average startup or professional that wants a full-time office as well. The point of the space is to meet whatever coworking needs your work situation may require.

— Super fast wi-fi

Now, we’re not saying Nomade Bordeaux is a perfect coworking space. We have heard more than one one member say it isn’t ideal to travel to this space by car and that you’re better off walking or using public transport.
