Welcome to Village by CA
Our goal is to participate in the creation of wealth in our regions. We firmly believe that tomorrow’s champions of industry and drivers of economy are created by the synergy of start-ups and of local contributors to innovation.
Our mission is to create a space where exchanges and common actions are encouraged, and where Village partners can cooperate in order to innovate, in a decentralized manner across the more than 30 Villages to be opened by 2020.
Our objective is to provide new start-ups with the same opportunities for success, no matter which Village they are from. We also aim to promote and support entrepreneurship beyond our own borders, in order for projects anchored in our regions to resonate across the country and around the world.
Our purpose is to imbue the present and future generations with an appetite for enterprise so that the projects hosted by our Villages evolve into emblematic businesses contributing to France’s economic success.
