danone.communities : How does it work ?

danone.communities provides assistance built on financial support and expertise.

Financial support comes from a socially responsible investment fund that dedicates part of its assets to social businesses.

Expertise is provided by seven staff members in Paris and field coordinators. In keeping with the nature of the challenges facing the sector, they practice teamwork, stay in contact with our entrepreneurs in the field, and constantly monitor best practices worldwide.


Together they ensure that all ten of our social businesses can tap into world-class expertise in R&D, finance, law, marketing, social innovation, leadership skills and business organization.
At danone.communities, we know that the key to success lies in co-creation with a worldwide community of experts, committed young people, universities, banks and NGOs—including CARE, the Red Cross, Gain, Gret, and Enda Graff.
