Companies in full development are crucial to our economy. But growth is not always straightforward. There is no magic formula that works for every company. As the IT partner of both small and large businesses, Orange is happy to help sustain your growth. A key aspect in this regard is inspiration. What approach do other entrepreneurs take? What do experts advise? What concrete applications are best suited for your SME?

 

Under the umbrella of “connected:” we have brought together the experiences of successful companies and the advice of our experts. We’ll take a closer look with you at where the growth opportunities for your business are and what applications can help you make them a reality. Because growth is not something you achieve alone.

entrepreneurs on
their growth process

The following entrepreneurs are proof that implementing digital applications isn’t just about creating opportunities for large corporations. As SMEs, they had the courage to opt for digitalisation and new technologies, and they’re happy to share their experiences.

Digitalisation

Easy Clothes was established in 2014 as a small online clothing store. All purchases went through Facebook, with CEO Marine Grosjean’s parents’ garage as their warehouse. The company grew into a full-fledged webshop with an actual warehouse as well as a pop-up store in Liège. This initially digital adventure continues to evolve. Next step: a webshop in the US and several pop-up stores in France.

Discover how digitalisation can bring transparency and peace of mind to customers too.
