The Blisce Group includes Blisce Advisors, which operates in Paris and provides direct advisory services to the Blisce Group’s clients, and Blisce US LLC, which operates in New York and focused on venture capital investment opportunities. The Blisce Group help entrepreneurs build mission-driven global consumer brands and technology company’s. In a meeting, we discussed the start-ups’ and social entrepreneurship ecosystem in Estonia. Romain introduced Epic foundation (https://epic.foundation/impact-solutions/selection). Foundation bridges the gap between a new generation of individual and corporate donors and organizations supporting children and youth. They develop new tools focused on enhancing how donors select, monitor and experience their impact. Their vision is to disrupt the philanthropic industry by combining passion and expertise with game-changing technology and partnership. We agreed that SEMA students’ organizations can apply for this foundation if they are addressing injustices experienced by children and youth with a specific emphasis on access to health, education, protection, and economic empowerment, or creating first employment opportunities. The successful applicants will be included in Epic’s portfolio of organisations and receive support.
