Launch of the tenth edition of the Créenso Prize: discover the social enterprises that will be supported by IÉSEG students

Created in 2011 by IÉSEG and the Fondation Ceetrus pour l’Entrepreneur Social (formerly the Fondation IMMOCHAN), the Créenso Prize – a national competition for social entrepreneurship – will celebrate its 10-year anniversary next year.

Approximately 120 entrepreneurs/social enterprises have already benefited from “Créenso” support.

This prize aims to reward the creators of a social enterprise in two ways:
• A maximum of fifteen entrepreneurs/social enterprises selected by the organizers benefit from the support and skills of an IÉSEG Master student during an academic year.
• In the spring of 2021, a total of € 25,000 will be awarded to the four best projects.

The award seeks to contribute to the success of young companies that focus on the human and social dimension and the emergence of a new generation of entrepreneurs, notably at IÉSEG.

On October 22, representatives from the 14 selected companies/organizations (see list below) met their IÉSEG student partner during an online meeting in order to begin a mission letter for this academic year.
