Réussir au canada
With extensive account management experience in both business development and IT processes with a Fortune 500, I am a soup-to-nuts consultant with the ability to process and analyze the most complex situations for inefficiencies. I am fluent in French and English, and I can speak Spanish and Cantonese, as well. I enjoy working on database and ERP software projects, and I use my background in project management in all aspects of my current position.
In addition to my work, I am a passionate entrepreneur, real estate investor, and blogger. I help foreign investors to make money in Canada by finding them income properties. My blogging focuses on the immigration, personal finance and real estate in Canada for French immigrants.
Fanny is one of our successful entrepreneurs. She is a yong francophone immigrant who has lived and worked in Africa, Europe and the US.

She recently celebrated one year anniversary of her clothing line after participating at our Classe Affaires
Fanny NGANTCHEU “This program has provided me the tools and the training I needed to launch my company. La Passerelle-I.D.E. is a good organization that helped francophone immigrants to develop themselves in Canada. They let me launch my collection with my first fashion show during the 1st Networking event and it was a success. Thank you La Passerelle-I.D.E. for contributing to my success!”
Our interior decorator Kalinka Essome utilizes her free time scouring flea markets in search of antique furniture to begin new tradition and histories.
Always in search of influences and styles in decoration, she travels the world to discover new cultures, themes and ideas. Her greatest passion is to harmoniously combine colors and light, integrating furniture and accessories within the living space, in order to create an atmosphere that best reflects your individual personality.
As an Afro-European living in North America, she is inspired by her dual culture, as well as the cultural mix that surrounds her. She uses these and other strengths to create original spaces that combine European elegance and refinement, enhanced by the richness of African and Asian crafts. Her favorite style is eclectic and ethnic, however, she appreciates all varieties of decoration and is always up for a new challenge.
