Mission accomplished for Montpellier Créathon! Held on November 23, this high point of the Social Cup – French competition for social entrepreneurs in the 18 to 30 age range – helped spark green and solidarity-oriented startups.
Gaining credibility within the Montpellier ecosystemFollowing the “battle” to be held on February 6, 2020, twelve finalists each win a prize ranging from 500 to 4,000 euros, or incubation at Makesense. Last year, 157 projects were created or expanded thanks to this program. “Participation brought me exposure, partially thanks to a video that was broadcast on social networks, as well as credibility within the Montpellier entrepreneurial ecosystem and a financial award,” says Adeline Lefebvre, regional finalist in the 2019 Social Cup. The award helped her launch a startup, LoopEat, which created a consignment system to fight against disposable packaging in take-out meals.
“Montpellier BIC gave me access to contacts and communicated about the crowdfunding campaign that is expected to enable me to launch zero-waste meal delivery in 2020."
The Social Cup once again marks the start of great adventures in the economy of tomorrow!
