Since 2012, we have been contributing to the development of community-minded projects led by students from diverse universities and business and engineering schools. These students compete in three categories: sustainable development, culture and sport.
Among the 23 teams that came to present their initiatives with passion and conviction, nine winning projects were chosen by our jury consisting of our employees and partners. In fact, it is the first time that the jury has included external representatives from amongst Natixis’ partners: Pascal Riu, Head of the Corporate Relations Department at AROP (the Association for the National Prestige of Paris Opera), Nina Pivard, Head of Partnerships and Sponsorships at Planète Urgence, and Charlie Cabrel, Head of Sponsorship at Racing 92.
