Investir &+ was created at the end of 2011 with the ambition to participate in the scaling-up of the social entrepreneurship sector. They achieve their mission by:

- Identifying, selecting and supporting (both financially and with human resources) social entrepreneurs with high social impact potential and economically sustainable projects

- Demonstrating, thanks to successfully supported projects, that the business model of social enterprises is competitive, sustainable and effective

They give preference to social entrepreneurs in France or near France in order to make mentoring easier and more efficient.

Investir &+ is currently in the process of merging with Fair Planet.
