Colleagues in our Paris office have held the CVC France Young Innovator Awards, in support of charity partner, Sport dans la Ville’s entrepreneurship programme, Entrepreneurs dans la Ville.

A panel, made up of representatives from CVC and Entrepreneurs dans la Ville, selected four finalists from a shortlist of ten from cities across France. Winners are awarded financial grants and will have ongoing support from the programme's start-up managers and the CVC team.

The CVC France Young Innovator Awards 2023 winners are:

  1. Pommy – Creating fruit compote from fruit rejected by supermarkets
  2. 6h55 – Healthy, natural bed duvets from virgin wool
  3. TeedUp - An app that connects users with sports coaches or partners in their local area

In 2015, we launched the CVC Young Innovator Awards to support young entrepreneurs to create the businesses of the future. They are held across CVC global locations, this is the first time they’ve been held in France.
