Bpifrance, which has been our longtime partner, entrusting us with various major projects around France, has partnered up with Pôle Emploi, the French governmental agency that helps people find jobs and provides for financial aids, to offer to young entrepreneurs the opportunity to create and showcase their innovative business ideas.
In a constant effort to support young entrepreneurs and innovative minds, this project from Bpifrance has become a movement since its launch in January 2019 from public authority’s inquiry. With these two companies joining hands in building a large community for creators to procreate, the market seems hopeful in both île-de-France and the regions.
This program, named “Entrepreneuriat pour Tous” (Entrepreneurship For All), is dedicated to facilitating the accompaniment and funding for those coming in with projects. Among the solutions that were developed, Bpifrance also partnered with CitésLab project managers in charge of assisting entrepreneurs during the making of their projects.
The program has also entrusted ViaDirect with equipping 50 Pôle Emploi agencies in this second half of 2021, with “Entrepreneuriat Pour Tous” interactive kiosks. Our kiosks aim to provide a base of information around business creation for job seekers. Through these kiosks, they also benefit from an initial reception and redirection towards support networks for business creation in their region.
ViaDirect is delighted to be providing a digital solution for easy access to information in a major project that supports young entrepreneurs in France. The chosen model is the Marina kiosk, for its refined appearance and intuitive usage surface. The kiosks come with ViaDirect informative software specially designed in accordance with the program’s needs. ViaDirect also participated in the conception of this project, in interactive ergonomics and features designing of the solution before launching into the development phase.
After deployment in 20 agencies in Île-de-France, our production and operations team is working hard to deploy the kiosks in the 30 agencies in selected regions, so please look out for more of ViaDirect’s updates!
