Entrepreneurship is the first natural response to high unemployment. Because creating a company means creating one’s own employment, Positive Planet aims to help those who, despite being in a precarious economic situation, are sufficiently motivated to become entrepreneurial. We give them the intellectual know-how and skills to manage their company, support them during the project design, accompany them during the initial set-up and exploitation, help them to access means of finance, and ensure their increasing autonomy through being permanently present.
