REC Innovation - Programme Programme

REC
Accélération


Context and issues

The Ile-de-France region is home to a great range of economic and social disparity.
Insertion structures through economic activity (IAE) allow the people in unstable situations (difficulties due to health or age-related problems, social situations, etc) to benefit from a support network that will facilitate their professional reintegration.

Since 2010, REC has accompanied IAE companies and thoroughly understand the concerns of their managers and directors. They express the need for time to create innovative strategies that will succeed in the long term. They are yearning to take a reflect creatively around these issues in order to build durable ecosystems and are eager to avoid short term solutions that breed insecurity. This is why REC Innovation created an acceleration programme in 2015 which is wholly dedicated to such individuals. Originally named “E puissance 4”, 20 laureates were accompanied thanks to the programme in 2015 and 2017. From 2018 onwards, the programme has been renamed REC Accélération

The project that I submitted to E puissance 4 concerned the development of a network of operators specialising in the reuse of toys. The in-depth technical support that was offered enable the future network of this sector to take form
