The first edition of this initiative, launched under the high patronage of President Hollande, recognizes 10 socially innovative projects in the areas of pollution control, health, education and culture.

The winners are young entrepreneurs from the Global South who want to address the challenges facing society in a concrete and sustainable way. They will receive funding and will benefit from a year-long support program, which will start with a week of workshops, training and meetings in France.
