The website (http://entrepreneurclub.orange) is a source of information for entrepreneurs that puts them in touch with a variety of instruments from Orange that support entrepreneurship. The Entrepreneur Club is to provide practical information and tools for company creation.
In a statement issued by the company,entrepreneurs in Africa and the Middle East are contributing to their countries’ development and reputation. Orange collaborates with them on a daily basis by giving them access to quality voice and data services. Orange also supports small and medium companies in the region as part of its policy of corporate social responsibility, for example through the Orange Prize for the social entrepreneur in Africa and by working with a number of local incubators (CTIC in Senegal, CIPMEN in Niger, etc.).
The Entrepreneur Club will also direct entrepreneurs towards ecosystem instruments suited to their situation. For example, the entrepreneur can find pertinent information on numerous aspects of his or her business, including the legal environment, how-to sheets, best practices, tips and video verbatims.
Some entrepreneurs need the support, hosting and coaching that incubators provide, others want to improve their payment options with Orange’s APIs, still others are looking for financing. In addition to Orange’s local B2B services, the Net surfer is introduced to Imagine with Orange, Orange Partner, Orange Developer, Orange Fab and Orange Digital Ventures.
