Social entrepreneurship, Ticket for Change issues a call for projects alongside the Carrefour Foundation on food aid
Having turned food into a means of tackling exclusion, the Carrefour Foundation is joining forces with Ticket the Change for the fourth edition of its "Entrepreneur Programme". The aim is to find 50 budding entrepreneurs and leaders of projects that make a positive impact. Of the ten challenges facing society that the organisation seeks to address, the Carrefour Foundation will focus on identifying innovative entrepreneurs working in "Agriculture and Food".
Candidates have up until 2 April to get involved!
The Ticket for Change organisation works on getting companies, associations and social entrepreneurs to work closely together on finding sustainable solutions to the problems facing society. More specifically, the Carrefour Foundation supports entrepreneurial endeavours focused on food aid. Those whose projects are selected will receive support in a number of different areas so they can successfully deliver their social initiatives:
‒ 6 months of personalised, daily support
‒ the Ticket for Change Tour for 10 days so they can meet the country’s most inspirational social innovation pioneers and experts
‒ Distance & on-site training programmes (18 days)
‒ Immersive experiences out in the field
This partnership between the Carrefour Foundation and Ticket for Change is part of an initiative to extend the ongoing sponsorship arrangements in place with several social entrepreneurship support structures (100 Jours pour Entreprendre, ADIE, France Active etc.)
The "Entrepreneur Programme" in a few words
When entrepreneurs and major companies work together, new ways of working together emerge… each party's contributions result in a social innovation laboratory taking shape. The scheme is aiming to showcase ten of the challenges being taken up by social enterprises between now and 2020 Agriculture and Food, Environment, Work and Employment, Education, Inclusion and Social Connections, Civic Engagement, Health, Habitat, Energy and Mobility.
