Soirée des Audacieux: the 2nd edition gets off to a flying start

By 26 June 2023March 19th, 2024Events

On June 19, the Audencia Foundation organized the 2nd edition of the Soirée des Audacieux at the Mediacampus in Nantes. This fundraising evening was designed to bring together the Foundation’s donors for a moment of thanks, exchange and sharing. It was an opportunity for them to meet 3 inspiring and talented students who came to share their career paths, made possible thanks to donations made to the Audencia Foundation. With €37,980 raised, the initial target of €35,000 was quickly surpassed to support the students!

The evening also marked the launch of the new “Diversity & Inclusion” fundraising campaign, two of the École’s core values. The aim is to promote equal opportunities and enhance the diversity of the school’s student profiles. To achieve this, the Foundation aims to raise 3.9 million euros by the end of 2025 to help finance solidarity scholarships, including :

  • Social scholarships, awarded on the basis of social criteria, to help young people make the most of their studies,
  • Entrepreneurship grants to encourage students to carry out their entrepreneurial projects as an alternative to their end-of-study internships,
  • Parcours Sirius, a unique program in France that offers a year’s training to students with a vocational baccalaureate. The aim is to enable them to enter the Bachelor’s program, thanks to human and financial support.

The event brought together more than fifteen of the school’s graduating classes, from the Bachelor’s program to the Grande Ecole program, from 1978 to 2018!

Thank you to all the graduates and donors for their generosity and commitment to the students!

The Audacieux evening is also in Paris!

For those who were unable to attend the Nantes event, the Foundation is organizing a second event on September 11 in Paris.
