04/04/2022 | In Périgueux, near the future business district, a place is entirely dedicated to the social and solidarity economy, social innovation and solidarity finance.

Le Multiple welcomes four players from the social and solidarity economy in Périgueux, i.e. 7 employees

A stone’s throw from the Périgueux station district, the Multiple is located on an area of ​​190 m². This site, which offers shared spaces, brings together actors in support, financing and training in office spaces and offers other SSE actors the possibility of using the place to meet. The objectives are multiple: spread the spirit of entrepreneurship differently, promote social innovation and develop bridges between the social solidarity economy and other economic sectors.

The Périgueux station district is undergoing major changes. A new place dedicated to entrepreneurship was born a few months ago, rue Alphée-Maziéras. Le Multiple is located on an area of ​​190 m²: 90 m² of offices and 100 m² of shared spaces for a capacity of 40 people.

The site hosts four actors: France active Nouvelle-Aquitaine, which offers committed entrepreneurs of VSEs or SSE structures, support in setting up their project, from creation to development; Coop Alpha, which allows entrepreneurs to test or develop their business; ATIS, whose mission is to support the emergence and development of social innovation projects and companies in the social and solidarity economy via unmet opportunities, and finally, Uniformation, which intervenes on issues of training, skills and employment and work-study programs with companies. In the Dordogne, ATIS (Territories and Social Innovation Association) is the lead partner for Emergence Périgord, an incubator dedicated to the social and solidarity economy. Seven employees work on the site.

Undertake differently

The opening of the Multiple associated with the dynamism of the Périgord actors must contribute to the recognition and development of the social and solidarity economy, social innovation and finance on the departmental territory. The actors gathered in this place pursue several objectives: to spread the spirit of entrepreneurship differently, to accelerate the success of entrepreneurs by giving them the means to get involved, to open the way to new entrepreneurial practices and to develop bridges between the SSE and other economic sectors.

Le Multiple also offers the possibility for other actors in the sector, partners, project leaders and entrepreneurs to use the meeting spaces for times of exchange and meetings, which can give rise to the organization of events. common.

A mapping of actors

Currently, a census of actors and support for the social and solidarity economy in the Dordogne is underway in partnership with the Regional Chamber of the social and solidarity economy of New Aquitaine. The aim is to formalize a map in order to help guide project leaders and structures towards the right partners according to their state of progress and their project. For this year, this mapping, once completed, will be distributed to the various partners to help them locate the skills and specificities of each other. This approach, which began at the end of 2020, made it possible to make the possible links between all the support and financing structures present in the Dordogne more legible. An event on the theme of business creation is scheduled for the month of November.
