People with ideas, entrepreneurs... are you committed with your business project to create a positive impact on society? Are you considering crowdfunding to get your project going? The “Let’s Dare to be Committed Entrepreneurs” competition is for you!

Osons les entrepreneurs engagés, concours ouvert jusqu'au 16 janvier
For the second consecutive year, France Active Airdie-Occitanie, in partnership with Montpellier Méditerranée Métropole, is offering a complete training, assistance, and support program on crowdfunding for the territory’s most committed entrepreneurs.
The goal of the competition (called in French : "Osons les entrepreneurs engagés") is to promote committed local companies and favor Montpellier Métropole citizen involvement in creating, consolidating, and developing those companies.

Are you tempted by the challenge? Concrete training, personalized assistance, and better understanding are all part of the program to get you ready, introduce you to other committed entrepreneurs, and make sure you are exposed to as many people as possible. You must submit your candidacy by January 16.

Among them were the cargo-bike by the cooperative bookstore La Cavale; the revegetation project at the Antonia international school; and the first series of bio-sourced boards by Yuyo natural surfboards.
