Their goal ? Democratize the investment of responsible, socially innovative and economically stable firms, such as Magica Vision, thanks to an equity crowd funding platform connecting particulars, supportive investment professionals and high social/societal/environmental impact firms.

 

Magica Vision :
a beautiful supportive and lightening project

Magica Vision is lead by Pierre Achache, a manager who became blind at 25 but who still managed to succeed in the « NTIC ». He created Magica Vision, a research, expertise and digital development hub to improve visual deficient people’s daily life.

Impressions from US experience

I wanted to give my impressions after 10 days in the US that were very inspiring. I found their commercial professionalism appealing and pleasant, so I make you a little feedback based on 3 axes : professionalism, personalization, relaxation.

 

PROFESSIONALISM

  • a developed speech, which implies a full knowledge of fees and offers
  • numerous purchase incitement
  • rapid answers to requests
  • they take the time to explain what they’re doing, what are the different steps, etc.

PERSONALIZATION

  • a personalized reception
  • a personalized visit when we feel like people are glad to welcome us

RELAXATION

  • tone liberty
  • they are comfortable with discussing, they are looking for sharing

 

I’m coming home with the impression to have heard a lot of positive messages, and even if it is only commercial, it is still pleasant.

This is what I get from my trip to the US, I hope that some of those points will be useful to your firm.
