Reading time 3 min.
At NHOOD, we like initiatives that make a difference, and in a good way. So we are particularly proud to manage and run the CEETRUS Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship. And even more so when we see the results of the last edition of the CREENSO prize, of which it is a partner and which is now celebrating its 10th anniversary.
What is the CREENSO Prize?
The Social Enterprise Creator Award is a competition to support and develop social entrepreneurship, organised in partnership with IESEG, a management school in Paris and Lille. The philosophy of this competition is to bring together the academic and business worlds around an entrepreneurial project. It allows the emergence of a new generation of entrepreneurs driven by the desire to do better for people and the planet, who have created their structure within the last 3 years. Each year, fifteen or so winners of the competition, selected from among sixty or so, have the chance to benefit from the personalised support of a voluntary and motivated 4th year student who will make his or her time, knowledge and skills available for one semester to support them in one of the areas proposed by the IESEG course. And because a project needs funds to get off the ground, the CEETRUS Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship is committed to paying out a total of €25,000 for the 4 most remarkable proposals after deliberation by a jury of social entrepreneurship experts who meet at the end of the semester.
CREENSO Award 2021 : The Winners
Here are the 4 winners of the 2021 edition who were rewarded on May 12th. They were chosen from among the 14 winners of the class of 2020-2021 who benefited from the students' skills sponsorship.
3rd prize awarded to Circul'Egg, founded by Yacine KABECHE (Anthony, 92). Reclaiming shells from the factory? This is now possible thanks to Circul'Egg, which, in a circular economy approach, transforms these shells into calcium carbonate powder and shell membrane powder and then resells them on the animal feed and nutraceutical markets.
And finally, the "Jury's Favourite" prize was awarded to Tirelires d'Avenir, launched by Louis FALGA and Benoît FLOQUET (Paris, 75). The aim of this project is to help young adults who have broken away from their families and have no resources, often from the Foyers de l'Aide Sociale à l'Enfance, by providing them with financial aid to protect them from fragile periods and prevent them from leaving the integration process or becoming socially excluded.
We wish the new candidates the same success as their predecessors!
