With the Entreprendre 2024 program, Groupe BPCE is mobilizing its efforts to ensure that the Olympic & Paralympic Games Paris 2024 will benefit local businesses… and micro-enterprises in particular. This initiative dovetails perfectly with the approach taken by Paris 2024 and SOLIDEO (Société de Livraison des Ouvrages Olympiques, the public entity responsible for managing structural and development projects for the Olympic Games Paris 2024) and their decision to organize Games that are both environmentally friendly and economically & socially responsible, notably by making tender invitations related to the construction projects and organization of Paris 2024 accessible to VSE-SMEs and entities active in the social & solidarity economy (SSE).
Informing regional VSE-SMEs and SSE entities about these opportunities, and facilitating their ability to seize them, is the commitment made by the Banques Populaires and Caisses d'Epargne, which are organizing a tour of France for this very purpose entitled Entreprendre 2024. This initiative is being carried out jointly with the MEDEF employers’ federation, Les Canaux (an entity supporting solidarity-based and innovative economic initiatives), France Active, CNCRESS (National Council of Regional Chambers of the Social Economy), Chambers of Commerce & Industry, ACPME, ADIE, Scop and other regional players...
Concretely, the aim is to enable all these companies to take part in the hundreds of tender invitations due to be issued up until 2024. These invitations to tender concern a large number of business sectors related to the construction of infrastructures and the organization of the games.
These meetings include presentations of the Entreprises 2024 and SSE 2024 online platforms designed to enable companies to submit bids to these tender invitations.
Some twenty dates have been scheduled throughout France with a view to raising the awareness of three to four thousand companies about these new opportunities.
