Project presented by L’Académie des Ruches

Encourage and support social entrepreneurship of women

Training and Help finding jobs

Since 2015, L’Académie des Ruches (“The Academy of Hives”) supports the entrepreneurship of women, still minorities among the entrepreneurs (only 8% of start-ups are founded by women), with the program "Les Audacieuses” (“The Audacious"), which aims at accompanying the entrepreneurship with strong social impact carried by women.

The project leaders benefit from a 9-month support which includes an immersion in the network of the NGO, trainings (commercial negotiation, managerial posture, etc.), collective workshops with experts (communication, finance, law), an individual mentorship by an experienced social entrepreneur, and sessions of individual coaching.

This incubation program, already implemented in Ile-de-France and New Aquitaine, allowed to support 64 female entrepreneurs since 2015, and it will be spread out in other regions from 2018 (Occitanie and Pays de la Loire to begin), with the objective to multiply the impact on territories in France.
