French-American Entrepreneurial Contest!
Sponsored jointly by the Club 600 and the French-American Chamber of Commerce (FACC), the fourth annual French-American Entrepreneurship Competition is currently accepting entries through December 31, 2011. Established in 2008, the program seeks to help young French entrepreneurs succeed in the United States. To apply, entrepreneurs must submit business plans for review by a panel of members with expertise in many industries. Criteria include profit- seeking projects, operating in prelaunch or startup phase, in and for the US market. The 2011 winner will receive a $10,000 cash prize along with a 12-month coaching package, including strategic, legal, accounting and financial advice, from industry experts. Last year’s winner, Céline Legros, former corporate lawyer and cooking enthusiast, launched a pastry catering business, Les Canelés de Céline, whose clients now include Louis Vuitton, Clarins, and the Nespresso boutiques.
