Entreparents

Becoming a parent is undoubtedly a wonderful source of happiness, but it also brings many changes and difficulties. Faced with these challenges, it can sometimes be difficult to find good listeners and suitable answers. Based on this realization, Emilie, Johanna, Clémence, and Anna, young mothers but also young entrepreneurs, took the initiative to create a digital support platform for parents called Entreparents.

Digital transition and education are key challenges for society in the future, and for these reasons, the Cuomo Foundation has decided to support this project and contribute to the funding of the application's launch.

Various working meetings held this year have allowed for the analysis of the project's progress and the appreciation of the communication methods implemented to promote Entreparents. In parallel, a collaboration is planned with the Princess Grace Hospital Center (CHPG).

Several working meetings have taken place to analyze the project's progress. "Let's Talk, Education" events are multiplying, as well as publications on Instagram and Facebook. Five meetings with parents are scheduled for 2023. A collaboration agreement is being prepared with the CHPG. A testing phase is planned between Decembe
