Nettoyage Océan

Nettoyage Ocean

Nettoyage Océan is the story of two young entrepreneurs, Charles-Eric Gascon, 23 years old and Jean Sébastien Guilbrault, 20 years old, who made a simple observation: the window cleaning service offering in Montréal is broad and non-standardized. There is no fixed price ranges and the customer loses out. They studied the market and decided to offer specific services which would permit them to consolidate the window cleaning market. Nettoyage Océan offers specific rates which are listed on their web site: www.nettoyageocean.com. With this concept, they applied for the Young Promoters Grant and were selected by the CLD Les-3-monts to receive a start-up grant. 

They developed a funny original marketing strategy that works: the window cleaners are dressed as sailors! Today this concept is the trademark of Nettoyage Océan. The company, founded in 2012, has experienced considerable growth. The two young entrepreneurs expect to employ 12 people by the end of 2013. And even in the face of such success, the young entrepreneurs still need the support of SAJE Montréal Centre advisors. They are now registered in the Business Follow-up and Development Program, and they make good use of the program resources to receive advice in managing their business from both the internal and external consultant teams.
