Every year for the past 8 years, during the months of November and December, we highlight one of our key focuses: fostering equal opportunities for all. This year in Pays de la Loire, the launch of our Entrepreneurship Awareness Months in the neighborhoods took place on November 20, 2023 at the Nantes Prefecture. The sumptuous Salle des Audiences welcomed 50 4th graders from Collège Pierre Norange in St Nazaire's cité éducative. These young people had the chance to hear inspiring speeches by the Secretary General of the Prefecture, Mr Pascal OTHEGUY, and the Secretary of State for Citizenship and Urban Affairs, Ms Sabrina Agresti-Roubache, both of whom grew up in the neighborhoods. They then spent an hour and a half talking to 5 entrepreneurs from a wide range of backgrounds, who shared with them inspiring messages of perseverance. Through their testimonials, these schoolchildren were able to identify with local success stories.
This event also took place simultaneously in 14 other French towns in Metropolitan France and the French Overseas Departments and Territories.
Thank you for your support, which enables us, each year, to bring more and more young people in the Loire Valley closer to the world of business!
The whole 100,000 Entrepreneurs team wishes you a very happy festive season!
