Gaining recognition and assistance for entrepreneurial projects is essential for young entrepreneurs. To help them in this journey, Petit Poucet, a community of successful business leaders, is conducting a competition. It aims at rewarding the best entrepreneurial initiatives by students and recent graduates. As part of the competition, 10 different prizes will be awarded by the jury: Award of Excellence, Innovation Award, Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award, IT Award, Trends and Culture Award, B2B Award, Creators of Future Award, Builders of Tomorrow Award, Food Tech and Gastronomy Award, and Social and Solidarity Award.
The winners will receive an endowment of up to €3,000 and around three months of advice from experts. They can also benefit from Petit Poucet’s alumni network, capital funding through dedicated partnerships, and hosting in its business incubators. The deadline to register for the competition is December 15. There are two stages to register. First, participants need to register online at www.concours.petitpoucet.fr to obtain a pre-registration number. Then, the application file and the proof of status (card student, certificate of schooling, last diploma) needs to be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
