French start-up YourEventManager steps on the gas for Crédit Agricole accelerator

French start-up YourEventManager, specialist in Meetings and Events services, has been selected to integrate ‘The Village by CA’, the biggest accelerator in France run by Credit Agricole, the third largest bank in Europe.

Since 2014, Crédit Agricole’s start-up accelerator has provided support and office services to nearly 700 start-ups in France, which have raised more than €200m in 2017.

The Village by CA is a unique ecosystem where start-ups and large groups co-operate to innovate together.

YourEventManager is offering an All in One solution that helps employees book online hotels, venues, restaurants, teambuilding activities and shuttles in 50 countries. The tool also integrates a centralised payment solution.

YourEventManager’s two co-founders, Hyunjung Park, expert in the MICE sector and Alex Philippot, multi-entrepreneur, said they were proud to join The Village by CA’s ecosystem of open innovation. “We will soon announce the launch of our platform,” added Philippot.

Christian Boutroux, Director of TheVillage by CA said: “YourEventManager has an innovative project with a great potential, especially internationally. The entrepreneurial culture and dynamism of its two founders is fully in line with our DNA. I am delighted to welcome Hyunjung Park and Alex Philippot in the Village by CA in Reims.”
