The Women in Businesses For Good program has been co-created by 3 organizations with complementary roles and expertises :

  • Sparknews, specialized in the creation of media operations to promote innovative solutions.
  • MakeSense, specialized in co-creation programs between social entrepreneurship projects and big companies.
  • AXA, a global Insurance Company, particularly interested in exploring innovative solutions tackling societal challenges developed by women worldwide.

Sparknews is a social enterprise on a mission to amplify initiatives that have positive impact on major global issues (environment, education, gender equality, food security etc). In order to do this Sparknews identifies positive innovation projects all over the world and works with leading media on the creation of mass media operations to promote them to the public or the business audience (Impact Journalism Day, Solutions & Co). Sparknews also encourages co-innovation, acting as a connector between social entrepreneurs and the business world (Club de l’innovation Positive).
