71% of young people think they need fi­nan­cial sup­port


Sur­vey and in­ter­view with Bé­né­dicte Sam­son, CEO of Moov­jee, an as­so­cia­tion that re­wards each year (since 2009) en­tre­pre­neurs’ pro­jects (1) aged bet­ween 18 and 30 in 5 ca­te­go­ries(2) through a ju­ry of 120 pro­fes­sio­nals.

Thus, the lau­reates be­ne­fit from fi­nan­cial aid but al­so from sup­port through trai­ning work­shops, men­to­ring and the sup­port of a net­work.

What is the key to the suc­cess of en­tre­pre­neu­rial pro­jects?

«The per­so­na­li­ty, ca­pa­ci­ty and will of young en­tre­pre­neurs» ac­cor­ding to Bé­né­dicte Sam­son. Through her 9 years of ex­pe­rience hor first les­son is to «trust young people, man is the most im­por­tant». Ac­cor­ding to her, a pro­ject can im­prove to be rea­lis­tic and achie­vable if it is car­ried by so­meone per­se­ve­ring and mo­ti­va­ted.

Ac­cor­ding to the young people, fi­nan­cial means are ne­ces­sa­ry (71% of the ans­wers in a sample of 1000 young people) (3), ex­pe­rience (50%), mar­ket confi­dence (40%) and an in­no­va­tive idea (29%). As for the per­so­na­li­ty of the en­tre­pre­neur, he must be pas­sio­nate, ma­na­ger, lea­der and risk ta­ker (44% to 42% for each of these res­ponses).
