Organized from November 30 to December 5 in Marseille by the French Development Agency in partnership with the EMERGING Valley summit, the 3rd edition of the Social & Inclusive Business Camp (SIBC) brought together a group of 60 social entrepreneurs to support them in their change of scale.
I&P Conseil was responsible for building the entire "Investment Readiness" training vertical to help SIBC entrepreneurs succeed in their fundraising. Initially, the training was conducted via elearning, through a dedicated digital platform content in various formats (presentations, videos, virtual classroom, etc.). The cohort was able to learn more about, among other things, fundraising in venture capital, or impact investors. These courses involved many I&P experts, especially from the investment impact teams.
The online training was completed by a day in person at the bootcamp in Marseille. Cécile Carlier, General Director of I&P Conseil, and Sophie Ménager, Financial Manager, condurected a case study on fundraising, around a fictional company adapted to SIBC entrepreneurs. This case study allowed entrepreneurs to discover the different financing tools, from bootstrapping to capital investment, and in particular those of the start-up phase, but also to master the main methods of valuation of a company, and to discover the legal tools of fundraising.
Après une journée dense et riche en contenus, les retours des entrepreneurs étaient très enthousiastes. Ils ont notamment pu mobiliser ce qu'ils avaient appris tout au long de la formation Investment Readiness lors du "speed pitching" organisé dans le cadre du sommet EMERGING Valley à theCamp (Aix-en-Provence). Cette rencontre entre entrepreneurs et investisseurs, à laquelle ont participé les équipes d'investissement d'I&P, a ainsi été enrichie et facilitée par les formations du SIBC.
