ADN is launching the 2nd edition of its entrepreneurial competition in
collaboration with the Cité Collégiale, the Conseil des Ecoles Catholiques du
Centre-Est and BEN’SS PRO.
As a reminder, the purpose of the ADN entrepreneurial competitions is to
allow Afro-descendant entrepreneurs to highlight themselves, but also and
above all to showcase their talent in to be able to benefit from the
multifaceted support offered by ADN and its partners for those who will have
the chance and the honor to see their projects selected.
ADN goes further with an innovation that will consist in taking charge of the
lucky winners of this competition by giving them high-level training in the
management of the different aspects of a project, personalized coaching and
