Angela and Cyrille Flichy are the founders of Seeds, a Swiss-based NGO supporting micro finance and social businesses projects. It is at the occasion of their wedding that they decided to create this organization, an exciting project dedicated to high potential low income population. With more than 300 donors and 25 active members, Seeds currently supports around 1’000 beneficiaries.
Social entrepreneur and working in the area of humanitarian aid, Angela is passionate about helping future entrepreneurs realize their ambitions. Angela studied Business Administration in Spain and Germany and worked in development aid projects based in four different continents. She is fluent in different languages including French, German, English and Spanish. She also serves on the board of the Swiss association of Oikocredit (largest privately funded micro finance fund in the world).
Cyrille works in Geneva as senior investment Advisor and fund Manager for a Middle Eastern financial institution. Born in Switzerland, Cyrille holds a Master’s degree in Finance from Edhec Business School in France and European Business School in Germany. Passionate about creating new projects, Cyrille has already successfully co-founded long lasting associations, and currently provides Seeds with his development experience.
Angela and Cyrille will join us to talk about their experience in supporting the creation of entrepreneurial small businesses in developing countries, and how this can be applied to any other entrepreneurial project.
