60 000 rebonds is a federation of associations that helps men and women who have dared to undertake a new professional project, even though they have lost everything (job, work tools, assets and self-confidence).
With a community of more than 1,200 volunteers and around thirty permanent employees in 10 regions of France, as well as in the French West Indies and Guyana, the supported entrepreneur benefits from a free, tailor-made scheme, with twofold individual support provided by a coach and a sponsor, supplemented by monthly group sessions.
Since 2012, the 1,200 volunteers of the 60,000 Rebonds association have been working to change society's view of failure by helping these entrepreneurs to rebuild their lives and move on to a new professional project.
750 entrepreneurs rebounded in 2022 and the association plans to support 1,000 in 2023. Thanks to support that can last up to 24 months, 96% of them bounce back (50% in the workforce and 50% in entrepreneurship).
