Brilliant performance by the NEOMA BS student society Enactus
Three project by the NEOMA BS Enactus student society at Rouen and Reims campuses flew the flag for the School’s clubs and societies during the first edition of Coup2Boost, on Thursday 27 April in Paris.
This national competition, open to all student projects, aims to identify and finance the best student projects in France in the following fields: entrepreneurship, sport, digital technology, solidarity, art and culture, sustainable development, internationalisation, and innovation. Five firms–Abylsen, Coca-Cola European Partners, Dassault Systèmes, Dentsu Aegis Network and DEF Network–each selected five projects for the final from the 600 applications sent by 2 400 students from 175 schools. Once into the final straight, the finalists presented their project orally.
This presentation provided our NEOMA BS Enactus students with a wonderful opportunity to defend their ambitious projects focussing on the social economy, and to network with representatives of the corporate partners present for the occasion.
The “Clean Water” project team (ENACTUS NEOMA BS Reims), selected by Coca-Cola European Partners, presented their project to develop training schemes for making water purification filters for people in two Sri Lankan villages that are currently polluted by agricultural fertilizers and pesticides.
The “Beyomb” project (ENACTUS NEOMA BS Rouen) was one of the finalists chosen by DEF network for its programme for introducing Soya into the Senegal region to fight against child malnutrition.
Finally, the “Move On” project (ENACTUS NEOMA BS Rouen), also selected by DEF Network, succeeded brilliantly, winning the second prize of €1 500. This funding will enable the society to implement its ambitious project combining waste reduction with jobs for the unemployed, which processes unsold food products (as soup, crisps, smoothies, etc.) to help the underprivileged.
