Mona-Lisa Prosper and Frédérique Lissoir don't fit the typical lawyer profile. They're not at all like the cliché image of lawyers on American TV shows--quite the opposite!
With Propulsio conseillers d'affaires 360o , these two active, cheerful women offer affordable, flexible and personalized legal services to meet the needs and means of emerging entrepreneurs.
Well aware that numerous resources are already available to businesses, Frédérique and Mona-Lisa instead decided to position themselves as trusted partners for startup businesses to support entrepreneurs in making their dreams come true.
In business, every dollar counts
We both knew we had the entrepreneurial spirit. Since we didn't fit into the traditional legal mould, we decided to launch a startup dedicated to startups," Frédérique explained. "But we also provide services for established companies looking for a personalized approach to more specific needs, like business transfers."
It's really important to us to offer affordable services," Mona-Lisa added. "Startups aren't rolling in money and every dollar counts! Our approach is to build a long-term business relationship, with trust and a good understanding of our clients' entrepreneurial vision. We like to talk to them, so we can better understand them and better advise them."
Connected to the business community
Well established in their industry, the two associates and their team are actively involved in several business and community social networks.
We're very active on social media, but we strongly believe in the power of human contact," Frédérique said. It's our way of gauging our client base and understanding what they're experiencing day-to-day, not to mention that the strength of the network benefits all its members! Our business philosophy is to ally with people who are smarter than us, in a variety of areas, to best serve the interests of our clients. This business structure, which is more adaptable and diversified, gives us more possibilities."
In just two years, the pair has noted how much business people appreciate the mission of Propulsio 360o . The company has already tripled in size, and is looking at some interesting international projects. In a few weeks, one of the women will be joining the G20 as part of a foreign mission for young entrepreneurs, which will surely result in constructive discussions and rewarding experiences.
