Events en Folizz 2016 Class

Joining a school as prestigious as emlyon business school? Never would have been possible without Entrepreneurs dans la Ville. The training and the 2 years housed in Sport dans la Ville business incubator in Lyon gave a whole new perspective to my project. Entrepreneurs dans la Ville , it's a great springboard!

Makiti Afrika - 2017 Class

Entrepreneurs dans la Ville is, in my opinion, above all, a place of mutual aid and development of diversity. Belonging to the Entrepreneurs dans la Ville family represents for me an access to a qualitative network that reinforces the credibility of my company in a national ecosystem.

What a chance to be part of this program, a true human adventure. In addition to being guided by experts in business creation, I met a second family: the program's entrepreneurs!
