The Be A Boss initiative aims to shed light on the commitments and struggles of women in the world of entrepreneurship, in line with the Bordeaux incubator “The Firsts”, based in Darwin, which supports and supports startup projects created by women.

The concept revolves around three key objectives:

  • To increase women’s entrepreneurial ambitions by rewarding and highlighting the initiatives selected by the jury.
  • Select the startups of tomorrow that will have a significant impact on the economic and/or social ecosystem.
  • Support companies and initiatives that offer new and ambitious ideas.

The Stopover of the third edition of The Third Edition Be a boss was held on March 26, 2018 in line with its selection process for the startup of the year. In 5 stages, Be a boss’s journey criss-crosses France in 5 cities to finish in Paris with the presentation and award of the startup of the year, the Be A Boss Award. Many partners support the event such as BNP Paribas, INPI France and Bordeaux Business.

Last year, 600 startups were able to participate and present their projects and attend forums. 200 candidate projects also accompanied the event, which was sponsored by some 30 partners and 8 sponsors wishing to support entrepreneurial initiatives.

The Be A Boss Award recognizes startups founded or co-founded by women. Each stage is an opportunity for 7 shortlisted startups to present their projects and initiatives to a jury that will choose 2 of them for the Paris final. This final will welcome 12 startups that will present their projects through a pitch to investment funds, business angels and experts who will financially support the initiatives.

The prestigious Bordeaux jury, composed among others of Alexandre SUTRA manager at Héméra, Tiphaine BICHOT vice-president of French Tech Bordeaux, or Clovis COQU, head of Bordeaux Business, have named the two Bordeaux winners: Maryne Cotty-Eslous, founder of Lucine and Emmanuelle Gras, founder of Dipongo.

See you on September 20th for the Paris final!
