Lottotech Seeds est une initiative conçue pour donner l’envie d’entreprendre aux femmes en favorisant l’émergence de projets entrepreneuriaux, à les aider à affirmer leur légitimité d’entrepreneures et à adopter une posture de chef d’entreprise. Lottotech Seeds s’articule autour d’une formation consacrée au renforcement des compétences techniques des participantes qui seront ainsi mieux armées pour élaborer et présenter leurs projets respectifs devant un jury. Les projets devront s’inscrire dans le contexte d’un modèle économique pérenne, soucieux des enjeux environnementaux et sociaux et qui vise à apporter une plus-value sociétale. À la clé, les trois meilleurs projets recevront un investissement de démarrage.
