With a signature – Cooperate to Innovate – that reflects its ambition, the Village by CA relies on innovation ecosystems to support the growth and transformation of businesses in the regions and to accelerate the development of start-ups. Since its creation in 2014, the Village by CA network has grown, strengthened by the opening of 44 Villages in France, Italy and Luxembourg.

Its strong foothold in the innovation landscape has only served to confirm the intuition of the Crédit Agricole Group that led to its creation: supporting entrepreneurs, structuring and transforming organisations, energising regions and decentralising innovation.

OUR BELIEFS

Crédit Agricole has always acted in the interests of its customers and society as a whole. So it was a natural step for the Group to launch the Village by CA network, multiplying and transferring its strength, experience and roots to those involved in developing the local economy.

What sets us apart is that we support the transformation of all the companies that join our network, whatever their sector of activity.

OUR MISSION

Helping start-ups grow and businesses transform.

HOW WE WORK

Unique places where start-ups and businesses can work together to innovate.

Present throughout France, but also in Italy, Luxembourg and the French overseas departments and territories, the Villages by CA are a concept at the service of the regions, for decentralised innovation.
