Creating Success" program renewed

Proposed by BGE, the "Créer sa Réussite" scheme is designed to help unemployed people set up their own business or find a job. After initial conclusive results, the program has been renewed.


An entrepreneurial integration program

In France, 1 in 5 young people are unemployed for between one and four years after leaving school, according to data published byINSEE in March 2023. Those most affected are young people with few qualifications and high school graduates. Faced with this situation, the French government has chosen the program proposed by the BGE network (Booster et garant de l'entrepreneuriat) called "Créer sa Réussite" (Create your success), as part of a call for projects from France Relance.

Launched in October 2021, the program for integration through entrepreneurship aims tosupport 9,000 people out of work, including 3,000 young people, by helping them to set up their own business or find permanent employment.

More specifically, "Créer sa Réussite" is aimed at :

  • under 30
  • over 50
  • recipients of minimum social benefits
  • people living in a priority urban district (QPV) or rural revitalization zone (ZRR)
  • people with disabilities

"Créer sa Réussite": support at all times 

The program begins with a "positioning" interview, which helps determine the next step in the program. Beneficiaries then have access to :

  • a customized support program
  • new contacts to expand their address books
  • personalized advice and training

The support paths offered include 3 common axes:

  • setting the scene
  • appropriation of an economic culture specific to entrepreneurship
  • skills upgrading to take on entrepreneurial status.

Several topics are covered, including: business strategy, mastery of digital tools, and economic viability. In addition, young people under the age of 30 receive a bonus through BGE's partners to help them launch their business.

Thanks to this program, which alternates between group workshops and one-to-one support, future entrepreneurs can gain in confidence, learn about their strengths, acquire method and skills, and draw up a clear action plan to bring their project to fruition under the best possible conditions.

Encouraging results

By March 31, 2023, 10,120 people, including 3,644 young people, had benefited from the "Créer sa Réussite" scheme. Among the beneficiaries, 62% had a baccalaureate or less, 58% were women, 38% were in receipt of RSA, 30% lived in QPV or ZRR areas and 4% were disabled.

Satisfied with these initial results, the French Minister of Labor, Employment and Integration confirmed the official program renewal on april 1, 2023. Since this announcement, more than 1,500 people have already been supported.
