Entrepreneurs Francophones PLUS

“The word 'entrepreneur' is French for 'has ideas,
does them'.”

Alexis Ohanian

A 'Francophone Entrepreneur' is a business (or an enterprise) whose owners are Francophone, or is managed by Francophones, or hires Francophones, or offers bilingual services (in French and/or other language), or a business whose proprietors may be persons other than Francophones but that hires Francophones to serve the Francophone population of the community, or that hires young Francophones to allow them to acquire experience and integrate themselves into the labour market.
