MOBILIZE INVEST SAS IS AN INVESTMENT COMPANY SERVING SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP, ENDOWED BY RENAULT WITH THE CAPITAL OF 5 MILLION EUROS.

Mobilize Invest funds enterprises (associations, cooperative societies, etc.) that develop mobility solutions to combat exclusion and encourage the employment of people facing hardship. The goal is to support social innovation projects.

It is overseen by governance bodies made up of leaders from different professions in Groupe Renault, a staff representative and independent experts specialised in social entrepreneurship and risk capital.
