Business starter: challenge your business start-up project and become a Reseau Entreprendre laureate



First step:

Initial discussions with the candidate and his project screening by Réseau Entreprendre International 

- Induction by the association, screening based on eligibility criteria, and referral to other support structures if necessary.
- Submission of your personal motivations, a CV, a summary note presenting your project in a few pages, the concept, the market, and the financial figures involved.
- All of the permanent members and volunteer entrepreneurs within the Reseau Entreprendre associations are obliged to maintain the confidentiality of projects.

Second step:

Meetings with experienced entrepreneurs to challenge and professionalise shortlisted projects

- First, you will meet with Association Director to discuss the human aspects, market, strategy, and finances; non-eligible candidates will be referred to other support structures more suited to their project, if necessary.
- Second is the approval meeting with experienced entrepreneurs and experts belonging to Reseau Entreprendre to offer guidance and to help you professionalise your project: identifying of the steps in the creation process, analysing and defining needs, personalised help taking stock with business owners, and evaluation of your potential.

Third step:

Presentation of "polished" projects to the Approval Committee, which is made up of experienced entrepreneurs who will unanimously decide whether to back the business starter

- After the project has been approved, which may take two to six months depending on its maturity on first contact, it may be presented to the Approval Committee.
- The Reviewer writes up the summary that will be presented to the Approval Committee.
- You present your project to the Approval Committee, which is made up of ten or so experienced entrepreneurs who will examine the applicant-project match, the project's feasibility and the applicant's willingness to become a part of Reseau Entreprendre International. 
- The Approval Committee decides unanimously on whether or not to support the business starter, who then becomes a laureate. They also appoint the new laureate's mentor, search for suitable solutions; and grant the loan on trust; all to provide the support for laureate (you).
