How to Make the Leap from Employee to Entrepreneur


There is an emerging recognition that employees who transition from organization employment to become entrepreneurs may have identified valuable entrepreneurial opportunities and may subsequently have better entrepreneurial performance than other individuals.

However, employees are usually reluctant to transition to entrepreneurship due to the risky income in entrepreneurship compared to a guaranteed income in organizational employment.

The French government has established innovative solutions to help (ex-) employees make a smooth transition toward entrepreneurship. 

In the first part of this session, Faten AMAMOU, a French Chartered accountant, will introduce some of these solutions.

In the second part, she will give a comprehensive overview of the business structures in France and introduce two major types: the sole trader business (Entreprise individuelle) and the private limited company (Société).

This workshop is the first of a series of useful workshops that will take place during the first term of the year. 

The next workshop/meetup ‘Which legal status should I choose for my company?’ will take place on February 22nd, 2017.
