« Business incubator Campus Pro »: support of young entrepreneurs from difficult neighborhoods.

Created in 1998, Sport dans la Ville is the main association for integration through sports in France. It promotes social and professional integration of young people in difficulty.

In 2007, Sport dans la Ville, in partnership with EMLYON, created a business start-up program, “Entrepreneur dans la Ville” which has given support to project young entrepreneurs from difficult neighborhoods and the creation of companies. In 2010, the “Entrepreneur dans la Ville” programme moved to new premises: “Campus Pro”. These premises consist of 10 offices, a meeting room, a catering area and an administration office. It provides support on-site to young people in their efforts to set up their company after a 4-month training course at EMLYON. They are accompanied right through to the operational set-up of their company.

In 2010, the Accor Foundation* contributed to the construction of the « Campus Pro ». In 2011-2012, it pursued its support to help 20 young entrepreneurs.

* In 2013, the Accor Foundation became Solidarity Accor.
