Make every day

ODDO BHF Young Entrepreneurs Awards…

…it’s a purpose driven initiative.

From seasoned entrepreneurs to incubated entrepreneurs, we form a community driven by a common energy: to innovate, look ahead, seize opportunities, and surpass ourselves collectively.

We are all about supporting young entrepreneurs every step of the way as they embark on their business creation journey, by sharing our very own experience and know-how.

That is why we’ve created the ODDO BHF Young Entrepreneurs Awards (OYEA). A prize, but above all a support program for the most promising startups across France and Switzerland.

32 incubators and a powerful body of business leaders - business angels, founders and CEOs, media partners, economic and financial experts - have joined forces with the ODDO BHF Group to help reveal and guide young entrepreneurs.

… and a commitment

Community. We want to promote synergy and shared success by building a pool of startups and linking it to the prestigious ODDO BHF network.

Inclusion. We encourage diversity and spontaneity. The network of partner incubators includes business schools, engineering schools and specialised incubators supporting important causes. We also welcome open applications.

Expertise. As an independent European financial group, we uncover value-creating opportunities for our clients every day. We strive to do the same for startups of the OYEA community. Winners will benefit from a one-year wealth structuring and investment support programme.

Unity. We are one team driven by common goals. We openly gather and share the advice, feedback and recommendations of the community.

Together, let’s make every day an opportunity.
