The Agence Ariège Attractivité is launching a call for projects* aimed at self-employed people and creators of new companies, in order to welcome them in its territory in the near future. With a total amount of more than 85,000 euros in assistance, advice and financing, the agency and its partners are ready to support about fifteen start-up projects over six months.
The way up to the mountain pastures* is a path traditionally fraught with difficulties, which, transposed to the starting of a business, conjures up the idea of an exploration of construction with support from helpful professionals. We are also going to turn it into an exploration of meetings and exchanges with a “Transhumance*” week-end in June 2021, which will allow you to ensure a good ascent with key people, models for enterprise and success.
« Mountanin Pastures of Opportunities» will be an opportune moment for innovation, creation and new contacts, to give a boost to your start-up project, which we hope to organize in Ariège and preferably in Haute-Ariège. Setting up a business is an adventure that can prove risky, decidedly so, with a success rate of 50%.
Doing so with accredited support provided by a multidisciplinary team, from Ariège and elsewhere, that we propose to you, inspired by visionary independent workers or company employees (in some cases already established in Ariège), rooted in their values and localities, a sign of promise and assurance for your business project.
