Washos’ Bertrand Patriarca reveals what drew him to the LA tech scene

On November 2014, Bertrand Patriarca arrived from Paris after having sold his previous company in Paris. He says Los Angeles was the obvious choice for his new project, Washos, but also for a new life with his wife and newborn son. The company hit the ground running, and in the past few months, the team has expanded the operations of the on-demand car detailing service to new markets,

“Los Angeles is not a single city — it’s a conglomerate of dozens of neighborhoods, each with its own lifestyle, spirit and influence. LA is a place where you can meet the world and discover the richness of hundreds of different cultures. Don’t be afraid of distance, because LA is a constant journey,” says Patriarca.
