First steps towards business with a purpose
Right after graduating from one of the top French business schools (ESSEC), I decided to join a social entreprise that had been set up to provide work to people who are far from the job market. As a student, I had volunteered as a teacher at a prison, and this experience had a deep impact on me.
Passionate about the outdoors, I then managed a non-profit organization that taught rock-climbing and mountaineering values to young delinquents. This organization, through partnerships with the French Ministry of Justice and a network of specialized educators, also laid the foundations for another social enterprise that was formed to help the most engaged of these youngsters find jobs.
