What is a Barcamp?
A Barcamp is an open meeting, which takes the form of interactive workshop/events where content is provided by participants who contribute to Barcamp. Participants put on the event to encourage collective brainstorming. It follows the principle: “No spectators/all participants”.
The Entrepreneurs Barcamp Seine St Denis
Orange hosted a Barcamp on 17 May 2017 at Orange Eastview at Bagnolet with young graduates from the Saint Denis neighbourhood so that they could discuss their desire to innovate and start a project. Orange helps them by giving them the tools they need to innovate which can be applied directly to their project, and supports them until they bring it to fruition.
The Entrepreneurs Barcamp Tour
Orange is planning to follow this first Barcamp with another two or three by the end of 2017. These will be hosted in different companies, with the purpose of bringing along 5 exceptional projects.
Also in the line of focus, Orange will initiate as many young people as possible from priority neighbourhoods into entrepreneurship by sharing innovation methodology resulting from Orange best practice and networking with local entrepreneurs.
