Volunteers hold an Open Day in La Giraudiere

On June 26th, La Giraudière held its open day. The purpose of the event was to discover all the hidden dimensions of entrepreneurship.

Since last May, the association Les Amis de la Giraudière is carrying out the project ”Recognizing Young Entrepreneurs and Teaching Entrepreneurship”. Funded by the European Commission, it gathers five students of different nationalities.

“An entrepreneur tends to bite off a little more than he can chew hoping he’ll quickly learn how to chew it.”

The open day began at 2 p.m. with the introduction of the concept of “entrepreneurship”. Hugo Müller, Erasmus student, presented social and commercial entrepreneurship. These two branches are the most important areas of the matter.

Afterwards, Paul Rice presented the project. His speech was related to schools and entrepreneurs. Furthermore, the discussion about improving education institutions was present too.

In fact, several media in the area reported on the event, with the assistance of Jean-Yves Delage from the Charente Libre newspaper and Joël Bideau from the Sud-Ouest. If you are interested in those articles, you can check them out here. The mayor of Brossac, Didier Maudet, was also present.
