Do you have the drive of an entrepreneur ?
On the 28th of November, the Schneider Electric Youth Opportunities Foundation will reward the 7 winning projects of its Call for Projects.
After hearing all about the selected winning projects (from among 50 submitted project files), the award-winners will be announced.
This is the second Call for Projects entitled "Do you have the drive of an entrepreneur?" To participate in this contest, there are two conditions: the projects must be put forward by candidates of less than 35 years of age, either as individuals or in a team, and must be related to the business activities of Schneider Electric.
A Call for Projects is of course synonymous with financial assistance (from 10,000 to 30,000 Euros!). However, for the Schneider Electric Foundation, it is first and foremost a question of patronage of competency that is at the heart of this competition and which makes all the difference. The young award winner(s) will be provided with a sponsor – a Schneider Electric expert or employee – and will thus be able to profit from the services of the Group for a period of one year (international development, management, legal, marketing...)
