On Thursday, January 25, IÉSEG and the Ceetrus Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship, led and managed by Nhood France, selected the 15 finalists for the Prix Créenso 2024, the French National Prize for Social Entrepreneurs. Launched in 2011, this Prize aims to help young companies with a human and social focus to grow and increase their visibility and reputation. Since its creation, more than 120 companies have already been rewarded.
These 15 social companies, selected by a jury of professionals and students, will benefit from a sponsorship of skills by being accompanied throughout the semester by Master students from IÉSEG’s Grande École Program. These students will share with the founder their knowledge in Marketing, Finance, Management, Human Resources, Strategy… according to the needs of each company. This sponsorship of skills is integrated into the students’ curriculum and allows them to experience a concrete situation of business consulting.
This kick-off day was also the opportunity for all 15 entrepreneurs to meet their partner students who will be supporting them, either individually or in groups. At the end of the semester, the best projects will be rewarded with a total of €25,000.
