Victor, you are the founder and CEO of Myfuture, a socially committed start-up. Can you tell us how this entrepreneurial adventure came about ?
Myfuture was born out of the realization that guidance is a complex issue for young people and their parents, for whom it is often a source of anxiety. For example, 60% of high school students feel lost in their career choices, and 1/3 of university students would have made a different choice if they had been able to. What’s more, students from modest backgrounds are 2 times less likely than others to go on to higher education.
Founded 7 years ago, Myfuture is a social startup dedicated to helping young people aged 13 to 20, particularly those with no network, in their career choices. We help them discover careers by organizing face-to-face and remote meetings with professionals from all sectors.
In particular, Myfuture has set up an interactive WebTV offering workshops and live interviews with companies, from 5th grade to BAC+2. Accessible free of charge from the classroom or computer room, this content is available throughout the school year.
