My name is Jean Lasar. I am the founder of Survcoin, a company addressing climate change which is launching a currency dedicated to decarbonation. The currency can be given as a reward for reducing a carbon footprint. What we want to create is a transactional ecosystem which contributes to reducing greenhouse gases.

Cliché “There are only women in the SSE”

No, there aren’t only women. I would say that we account for almost half of the people. There is indeed a slight majority of female entrepreneurs, but often in areas that are very, very, very dynamic, such as marketing, etc. So, these are areas where both genders could be represented proportionally, but it just so happens that female entrepreneurs are very committed to them. This doesn’t mean that male entrepreneurs are non-existent, they exist and are equally very present in all areas.

I think that the main observation is that a lot of women are launching projects linked to SICs or impactful projects. We’ll call them that… It would be very sad to actually believe that. It would be so sad! But I think that statistically, it’s true. I believe that – if I may say so – it’s a ‘non-question’ because we mainly need people who are competent and committed to their project. I believe that that’s something to be proud of in terms of the social and solidarity economy: finding committed and useful people.

I think that it can be partly confirmed. If we expand the definition of the “social and solidarity economy” to include everything environmental, it’s no longer necessarily true.

Definitely, I support Piotr.

It’s an area where solidarity and cooperation prevail. From that point on, at the end of the day, whether you’re a man or a woman doesn’t really matter.
