Entreprendre 2024: working alongside customers to seize the opportunities of Paris 2024

Friday, 4 december 2020

Groupe BPCE companies are continuing to mobilize their efforts in favor of their customers and local regions through the organization of Entreprendre 2024 meetings. Recent examples include those held by the Caisse d’Epargne Grand Est Europe (CEGEE) and the Banque Populaire Auvergne Rhône Alpes (BPAURA) on November 25th and 30th respectively.

Get informed, get prepared, and apply!

A total of more than 300 professional customers, entrepreneurs, VSEs, SMEs, entities active in the Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE) or partners accepted the invitation to join in the two webinars organized for the occasion. 
The aim of these online seminars was to enable participants to learn about the economic opportunities created by the 2024 Paris Olympics (notably the different public and private calls for tenders related to the Games) and to benefit from expert advice about how to submit their applications and be able to play an active part in the preparation and organization of this sporting event. “A breath of fresh air in the midst of the current crisis and the prospect of growth for the sports economy in the Eastern part of France,” emphasized Bruno Deletré, Chairman of the Management Board of the Caisse d’Epargne Grand Est Europe.

Fully mobilized teams

The meetings also provided an opportunity for both banks to showcase the expertise of their teams, who are all fully mobilized to accompany and support their customers as they attempt to capture these new markets. “All the BPAURA personnel are mobilized to provide craftsmen, VSEs and SMEs and SSE companies with the opportunity to actively contribute to the success of the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games,” said Daniel Karyotis, CEO of Banque Populaire Auvergne Rhône Alpes.

Official start to the Entrepreneurship campaign for the CEGEE

For the Caisse d’Epargne Grand Est Europe, the November 25 webinar also marked the official launch of a wide-ranging communications plan for Entreprendre 2024. This operation includes a website providing access to a wealth of useful information and relevant meetings along with details about the actions and initiatives taken by the savings bank in connection with the 2024 Paris Games. 
For Groupe BPCE, a Premium Partner of the 2024 Paris Olympics, this commitment goes well beyond marketing and public image: it contributes to the Group’s ambition to become the leading banking partner of the sports economy.
