Promoting the entrepreneurial spirit of trainees on a work/study contract by supporting and guiding them in their project to start or take over a company is a commitment! Over the past three years, Air France has been taking part in the Altern’up intra-company competition organized by EDF. This year, the jury selected 4 Air France trainees on a work/study contract who were able to take part in Créativ Week, which aims to allow each participant to present their business creation initiative through a 1:30 min pitch after following a week-long ”business developer pass”-type certified training. Congratulations to Blanche who is through to the final. The winners will be announced on November 13, 2018.
