JCEM presents 2019 Entrepreneurship Trophies

JCEM presents 2019 Entrepreneurship Trophies

By Cassandra Tanti - December 19, 2019

Monaco’s Young Chamber of Commerce (JCEM) followed up a successful first edition of its Entrepreneurship Trophies in 2018 with another this year by awarding a new host of Monegasque companies. 

The event, held in the Salle des Arts at One Monte Carlo on 17th December, was developed as an extension of the Business Creation Competition hosted by the JCEM every year.

They decided that honouring only the winners from a single competition was not enough, as they reward many projects throughout the year and this event gave them the opportunity to publicly do so.

Winners from several competitions were therefore recognised as well as a number of ‘Monegasque Business Success Stories’ and projects created exclusively by the students from Monaco’s schools, namely those from Albert 1er, François d’Assise, and the Technical and Hotel Lycée.

Many local dignitaries spoke, including Minister of the Interior Patrice Cellario, Minister of Finance and the Economy Jean Castellini, President of the National Council Stéphane Valéri, and President of the Education, Youth and Sports Commission of the National Council Marc Mourou.

The winners were:

  • Seeds of entrepreneurs: My Monaco (FANB), Easy Work (Technical and Hotel High School of Monaco), Mon’Eco (Lycée Albert Ier)
  • Startup Weekend Monaco: Octo’Travel – Language Courses
  • Business Creation Contest: World eBikes Series (Government Prize), ETYC (JCEM Prize), Sea Further (Coup de Coeur Athos Partners Prize)
  • Get in the Ring Monaco: Giannotti
