Our project “Station A Corporation” aims to develop a hyperlocal ecosystem of labelled service auto-entrepreneurs operating in services to the industry. We aspire to contribute to the development and strengthening of local networks of auto-entrepreneurs around the various trades. services to industry on a national scale, and facilitating their access to industrial customers.
There is currently a gap in the market for self-employed service contractors in larger industries. Local networks of auto-entrepreneurs around the various trades lack the opportunity to scale their business on a national level as they cannot easily access industrial customers. This is particularly relevant in the industries of:
- Facility Management
- Services to Industry
- Quality of Life
- Personal Services
- Urban and Rural Services
This is also relevant to the newer trades and services related to technology, digital, sustainable development, smart cities and the local industrial ecosystem.
Our ambition is to create an open service platform. We innovate every day to develop services for businesses and individuals ranging from plumbing, electricity, air conditioning, social assistance, catering, digital, marketer, cleaning, and gardening.
We already have more than 60 types of services and professions, for each type of service, we intend to recruit, transform and integrate more than 10 young people in each region, i.e. more than 600 young people per region.
We have a well-defined ten-step process that allows us to manage and successfully integrate young people into our ecosystem:
- Identify in the regions of intervention of the aggregator, a population of potential auto-entrepreneurs at the local level with business skills;
- Encourage their economic integration with registration in the national register of auto-entrepreneurs;
- Assess skills with a pre-qualification process for interested persons;
- Establish a collective development plan for practical and fun business skills, based on the acquisition of experience from the aggregator, seniors and its industrial partners within the framework of two complementary programs: an entrepreneurship program and a business skills development program;
- Label auto-entrepreneurs who have reached a minimum level of qualification;
- Contracting with labeled local auto-entrepreneurs to enable them to access the aggregator’s customers,
- Automate the monitoring of the post-intervention performance of the auto-entrepreneurs who are partners of the aggregator to ensure additional training plans and ensure the satisfaction of industrial customers;
- Inoculate industrial culture into local networks of qualified subcontractors who share the same human and professional values;
- Activate partnership levers to prepare an entrepreneurial ecosystem around these local networks integrating banks, insurance companies, foundations and other partners to complete the value offer of the aggregator;
- Empower and eventually franchise auto-entrepreneurs who have developed autonomy in project management beyond business skills with their transformation into legal entities.
It is likely that with CFYE support, the project will be better designed, proceed more quickly, or reach more young people than it otherwise would have. CFYE support will allow us to accelerate the development of our business model.
