Volvic Centre du Micro–entreprenariat

France

  • Social & business impact
The Auvergne region in France has a high proportion of unqualified young workers and is one of the least developed French regions in terms of job opportunities.
Danone’s aim is to stimulate the economy around the Volvic Plant.

  • Solution
With the support of the Danone Ecosystem Fund, Volvic Plant and its local partner l’Association pour le Droit à l’Initiative Economique (ADIE) co-created the “Volvic Micro-Entrepreneurship Center” project to support job creation in Auvergne, France. The project is the first micro-business incubator providing appropriate training and skills (e.g. accounting, customer relations management) to help micro-entrepreneurs refine their projects and create their own micro-business. ADIE can provide micro-credit to new entrepreneurs who are just starting out with their business. 

  • Social & business impacts
This project stimulates business creation in the Volvic region and creates additional employment opportunities.
Volvic Plant is strengthening its relationships with local actors while bolstering its licence to operate. 
This project contributes to the development of rural areas by making them less isolated economically.
