Maxime Olivier, CBO Sekoia

Its structure is comprehensive and provides feedback from other entrepreneurial experiences, which naturally creates new opportunities. It’s everything I could want from an accelerator.

Christophe Messager, CEO EXWEXs

Brest’s Village by CA is definitely one of the most efficient institutions in terms of tangibly helping its members, whether through its prospect-targeting network or through its team assisting us in communications, outreach and the search for new markets.

 Anna Korfer, Biskili Founder

If I could, I would do the workshops all over again ! When you get more than advice and when you feel that people are really invested, it’s a lot easier to open up. It’s a lot nicer on a human level, and you get to move forward faster. The team’s members all complement one another and each has their own expertise and experience in various fields. The Village team’s support and advice have helped me a lot, and I was able to make progress on major subjects.
