The Entrepreneurship and Impact Innovation chair of ESSEC (business school) is celebrating its 20th anniversary. Launched in 2002, it aims to: “encouraging entrepreneurship vocations with social and environmental impact, professionalizing the sector of the social and solidarity economy”, we can read in a press release from ESSEC. How? ‘Or what? “By strengthening the teams of existing impact companies.” This chair also wants “to irrigate all businesses and organizations, as well as the public sector with new skills, to promote the development of impactful innovation and the transformation of the economy”†
To mark the anniversary, Macif, a mutual insurance company and historic partner of the chairman, announced that it is extending its partnership with Essec for at least three years. Enough to train even more students in these essential themes. Since its inception, the chair has closed more than 440 Essec students. But also to enable better transparency of the internship and apprenticeship offer in the SSE sector.
