Halte 24-7 is proud to introduce two talented entrepreneurs who have been working together for some time. Patricia and Laurence created their company in different fields and would never have met if they did not have a common workplace: the coworking area Halte 24-7 at Longueuil.
Portraits of two womens entrepreneurs :
Laurence Levesque is just 21 years old and develops online sites with William Plante and Benjamin Hogue to sell various trendy items. The objective is to sell in large volume and quickly. In collaboration with a supply centre in China, Chinese products are on sale at Laurence's sites. Then, consumers can order the item directly. The product will be sent directly from China to the customer. The difficulty is to properly refer websites on social networks to reach the desired target.
Patricia Canales comes from Peru, her family owns the largest company on the fish market in Lima. Established in Quebec since 2007, she created Solfish 7 years ago in the field of importing seafood products from South America. These products are sold under the name Soleil du Sud and you can find them at Métro, IGA, Avril Supermarché Santé, small fish shops, independent markets, as well as in the food services sector. Patricia is sensitive to environmental issues and healthy eating habits, and therefore turns exclusively to natural products and without the addition of chemicals. With two new projects in development, she needed the help of a professional to make them a reality.
Long-term collaboration facilitated by the coworking space :
Word of mouth and the proximity of the Halte 24-7 offices allowed the two entrepreneurs to meet each other. Seduced by Patricia's project planned for September, Laurence has agreed to collaborate in its development. This long-term partnership is facilitated by the spirit of coworking, their offices are very close, so there is no more waiting between each email and missed calls. Work is progressing faster, and the many challenges are being addressed more effectively.
