Le Garage 2067, qu'est-ce que c'est?

BY FLORENT MOULINARD
@ VOL 14 ON JUN 30, 2016

Florent Moulinard: L'idée vient d'un constat simple : à Limoges, l'écosystème (compétences, financements et cadre de vie) est idéal pour développer des startups, mais, paradoxalement, elles sont très peu nombreuses. Le Garage 2067 est un accélérateur d'idées qui a pour but de faire émerger des startups.
Les objectifs sont une aide à la structuration, une lisibilité vis-à-vis de l'écosystème local et un réel accompagnement dans le processus de création d'entreprises.
