This 4th edition in France is organised in official partnership with the Conseil National du Numérique (CNNum), and is the 1st edition on a national scale. Its objective is to federate the French entrepreneurial ecosystem in order to raise the visibility of our country’s talents on the international scene. This year focuses on 4 key themes: Women, Youth, Inclusion and Connected Ecosystems.
OECD official partner of this 1st national edition, organise a workshop @Beeotop. This workshop offers an opportunity for participants to learn about recent entrepreneurship work by the OECD and discover the new Better Entrepreneurship Policy Tool. The tool helps users to explore how public policies at national, regional, and local levels can support youth, women, the unemployed, and migrants in business creation and support the development of social enterprises. It includes:
Self-assessment questionnaires that provide a framework for reflecting on the inclusive and social entrepreneurship policies and programmes in a city, region or country
Policy guidance notes and inspiring case studies to support better policy design.
The Better Entrepreneurship Policy Tool is an initiative of the Directorate-General for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion of the European Commission, and the OECD Centre for Entrepreneurship, SMEs, Regions and Cities. This tool builds on the knowledge generated jointly by OECD and the European Commission on inclusive and social entrepreneurship policy. Since 2011, this collaboration has produced a series of publications, including The Missing Entrepreneurs book series, the good practice compendia on Boosting Social Enterprise Development and Inclusive Business Creation, policy briefs and country-specific policy reviews.
Please note that presentations will be made in English. Participants are encouraged to bring a laptop computer or tablet to participate in the working session.
