The L'OCCITANE Foundation started the 'L'OCCITANE pour Elles' programme with objective of promoting and accelerating women's business projects. This programme aims to identify, via a competition, the inspiring and visionary women leading active and creative businesses.
The second edition of the L'OCCITANE pour Elles competition, launched in June 2019, selected 6 new women entrepreneurs, bringing the number of businesses supported to 15 since the program's inception. The Foundation provides the winners of the competition with personalised support (technical, legal and tax assistance, project visibility, fundraising, personal development, access to suitable workspaces, etc.) in order to boost the growth of their business.
