In partnership with the Pôle régional d'économie sociale de Laval (PRESL),  Laval économique offers coaching services to pre-startup businesses or growth companies, to go along with a complete range of consulting services. Discover an approach designed to lend impetus to your initiatives.

Financing and Coaching

As a social economy enterprise, you have access to personalized coaching and to an exclusive financing program, the Fonds d’Entrepreneuriat collectif (FEC).
