Partnerships

As we dedicate all our resources to identify, assist and promote the most effective solutions to social and environmental issues, we work very closely with a number of partners involved in the social innovation ecosystem.

SocialCOBizz’ mission is to foster a more inclusive society by spreading the Social Joint-Ventures model on a wide territorial and sectoral scope.
Led by Ares, Vitamine T, Yookaby Ventures and Investir&+, the SocialCOBizz initiative aims at promoting the Social Joint Venture model, which consists in merging into one social enterprise a corporate player with a strong sectorial competence on the one hand and a nonprofit organization with recognized expertise on a given social issue on the other hand.
Beyond well-known existing companies (Log’ins, Soluval etc.), a first Social Joint Venture called Acces Inclusive Tech was created by Accenture, Ares and Investir&+ as part of the SocialCOBizz initiative.
Through Google.org, Google’s philanthropic arm, the Google Impact Challenge was created to support and promote innovative projects that have a positive impact on our society.
At the end of 2015, 10 nonprofit organizations became Google Impact Challenge laureates in France and received a substantial grant (ranging from € 200 K to € 500 K each).
Google chose Investir&+ and the Social Factory to mentor and train these 10 laureates, as well as coordinate support provided by Google staff.
After a first successful edition, Google wished to extend the support offered to these 10 NGOs over the course of 2017 with Investir&+ and the Social Factory’s help, so as to develop and maintain the impact of their solutions.
