Supporting social entrepreneurship in the Var

In Toulon, 2EI Veolia and Veolia Water are partners of the Social Training Camp, an incubation program for social entrepreneurship in the Var managed by TVT Innovation.

This new partnership is part of the Pop Up by Veolia open social innovation initiative that has been running since 2014, coordinated by 2EI.

Monday, April 15, 2019 took place the selection committee, in which participated 2EI and Veolia Water. 8 projects were selected, including 2 responding to Veolia’s local challenges, identified during a diagnostic workshop organised by 2EI. These entrepreneurs will benefit from 6 months of collective and individual coaching to materialize their project.

Les Petits Mimi de Toulon (washable diaper washing service) and Delta 2.0 (occupational integration project to fight against digital exclusion) were chosen for their response to Veolia’s challenge "Resource your territory". Veolia teams will pay particular attention to the development of their project. 2EI teams will from now on focus their support on boosting potential co-creations between the Group and the social entrepreneurs.
