Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2012
This description of Andre Dupon's work was prepared when Andre Dupon was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2012.
For the past fifteen years, André Dupon has pioneered an alternative to the state-subsidized job training programs as a way to cope with France's deep-seated structural unemployment. By creating a series of hybrid value partnerships between business and social enterprises that have a strong job creation feature, André has fitted a new paradigm in the fight against unemployment and social exclusion and changed the views of business leaders looking to set up or extend business operations in France.
