- Our Mission
An international network where experienced entrepreneurs mentor new entrepreneurs
Our strength lies in the support given to up-and-coming entrepreneurs
Entrepreneur commitment is our trademark. Reseau Entreprendre International finds its purpose in their passion for entrepreneurship and their desire to pass this on
to new generation, in a spirit of economic responsability.
Members (experienced entrepreneurs) give of their time to assess business projects, to participate in approval committees, to mentor laureates (new entrepreneurs) and to get involved in the running of their association, all of which represents over 70,000 hours of voluntary work each year.
Laureates accepted to the programme receive free mentoring and are granted funding in the form of loans on trust. These are interest and collateral-free loans that have the added benefit of helping to secure other funds, notably from banks.
Reseau Entreprendre International's members mentor high-potential business starters:
Our mentoring programme focuses on business starters who, because of their ambition, entrepreneurial potential, experience, and project, are likely to transform their business into a high-potential SME.
To become a laureate and benefit from the mentoring offered in the framework of Reseau
Entreprendre International, the new entrepreneur must meet a number of selection criteria.
Working localy with entrepreneurs
Support is provided via local associations with regional coverage.
All Reseau Entreprendre associations are independant with their operating budget being funded mainly by member contributions.
The loans on trust are funded by banks, local authorities, the "Caisse des Dépôts" (French governmental financial institution), donors, and other institutions.
