Launch of 'Les Elles by Contrex'

Nov 23, 2017
Contrex

Nestlé Waters natural mineral water brand Contrex has launched a new social commitment programme to empower women in France.

'Les Elles by Contrex' aims to support women both personally and professionally by providing guidance over the long-term to fulfil their entrepreneurial goals.

Our brand has teamed up with Paris Pionnières, one of Europe's leading innovation platforms for female entrepreneurs, and Ulule, the largest European crowd-funding site, to support the programme.

Contrex’s latest initiative is part of our company’s effort to develop thriving communities worldwide.

As part of the programme, budding women entrepreneurs will take part in workshops, training and a final presentation, before a jury of experts chooses a winning project at the end of four sessions each year to win a six-month support package with Paris Pionnières, backed by our brand.

Every month, one project posted on the Ulule platform will be selected to win 2,500 Euros and finance for a promotional video, co-funded by our brand. Plus a grand winner will receive 10,000 Euros and a six-month support package with Paris Pionnières each year.

Contrex and Ulule have also created a dedicated page, Ulule Women, to showcase 3,700 projects every year.

Our brand is now on hand at the Mona co-working and sharing space in Paris until December 30, 2017, to meet and greet women, take applications and offer programme information.

The new programme, which is an extension of our #NousSommesInvincibles campaign, demonstrates our long-term commitment to a better future and sustainable way of working for all.
