The event hosted private and public partners as well as entrepreneurs involved in the organisation’s programs. La Cocotte will serve as a hub of activity in the community of Venissieux, offering a co-working space for local entrepreneurs as well as access to information and training sessions, created with the support of the SNF, and networking opportunities.
