Entrepreneurship Award

Two winners were called this year to win the entrepreneurship award. Benoit Floquet representing the association Tirelires d’Avenir and Nicolas Heugas for the start-up Bee Ready. Both were able to introduce themselves and their companies and associations. The awards were presented by Jean-Louis Marcé, Secretary of the ISAE-SUPAERO Foundation.

Nicolas Heugas (I 2019) for Bee Ready, a training platform for deferred video interviews which is a new selection method increasingly used by companies. Faced with the increase in recruitment by this means and candidates having difficulty preparing for it, the start-up Bee Ready offers a solution. Aimed at all candidates for deferred video interviews and more broadly at all candidates for job interviews, the start-up provides free mock interviews in real conditions.

Benoit Floquet (I 2020) for Tirelires d’Avenir, an association created in March 2020, which supports young adults in a situation of family rupture. The first form of support is financial aid that the association provides to young people between the ages of 18 and 25 to help them meet their daily needs. In addition to that, Tirelires d’Avenir has identified a real need for social links so that these young people are not excluded. As a result, a mentoring program was created between the youth supported and a young volunteer. Since its inception, Tirelires d’Avenir has supported more than a hundred young people in need and continues today with its mentoring program in Paris.
