GOVERNANCE

We are proud to have been joined along our pathway by committed people that believed in us, in
themselves, in their projects and who are convinced of the imperative for a profound transformation
of educational models.

Entrepreneurs, researchers, educators, students, parents, social partners, EduValley teams, leaders
and teams of the members of our portfolio are our main assets and animate our community,
particularly through our scientific council and our investment committee.

INVESTMENT COMMITTEE AND EDUVALLEY TEAM

The investment committee decides on EduValley's investments in entrepreneurial and non-profit
projects. Composed of sectorial experts but also financiers, lawyers and serial entrepreneurs, venture
capitalists or public authorities, the investment committee assesses the economic relevance of
projects submitted to Eduvalley.
They evaluate applications, interview the project leaders and propose to the EduValley board the
level and conditions of financial, human and industrial investments

SCIENTIFIC COUNCIL

The scientific council is the brain power grey matter of the group. It brings together national and
international scientists and technical experts to both define the scientific priorities and issues of the
industry and assess the viability of the various projects considered. Equipped with the knowledge
acquired through years of practice, research and personal commitment, the members of the
scientific committee have also a role of chaperone for companies and associations seeking expertise
to develop products and services with high added value.

LEADERS OF ASSETS

As the initial bearers of projects that were incubated or accelerated within Eduvalley or recruited
later to ensure their development, the management team are the company’s long term assets and
are obviously at the heart of the system.

Le comité d’investissement décide des investissements de Eduvalley dans des projets entrepreneuriaux et associatifs. Composé d’experts sectoriels mais aussi de financiers, de juristes et serial entrepreneurs, de représentants de fonds d’investissement ou de collectivités publiques, le comité d’investissement évalue la pertinence économique des projets soumis à Eduvalley.
Ils évaluent les dossiers de candidature, auditionnent les porteurs de projet et proposent au bureau de Eduvalley le niveau et les conditions d’investissement financiers, humains et industriels.

Le conseil scientifique est la matière grise du groupe. Il regroupe des scientifiques et experts techniques nationaux et internationaux pour à la fois définir les priorités et enjeux scientifiques du secteur et évaluer la viabilité des différents projets étudiés. Forts d’un savoir acquis par des années de pratique, de recherche et d’engagement personnel, les membres du comité scientifique ont aussi un rôle d’accompagnateur pour les entreprises et associations cherchant une expertise pour élaborer des produits et services à forte valeur ajoutée.

Porteurs initiaux des projets qui ont été incubés ou accélérés au sein de Eduvalley ou recrutés plus tard pour en assurer le développement, les équipes de direction des pépites constituent évidemment le cœur du dispositif.

Faced with the difficulties of expatriation, she has made it a strength to succeed in school and professionally.

A lot of time spent traveling around Africa, realizing how crucial training is to enable the development and economic transformation. He is now works in Abidjan for an international organization. Samuel is a pure product of the French republican school which he likes defending as it allowed him to build the professional life he wanted.

He regularly spends time responding and advising high school students or students who also want to work in international development or humanitarian action. He knows that an educational and vocational training path is not just a curriculum and diplomas! It is above all encounters, and this, no school can offer.
