Hectar Alumni testify

"We have made a big step forward in the professionalisation of the project! The group effect and the mentors help a lot. We were sceptical but in the end we are amazed at what we can do in 5 weeks, we asked ourselves the right questions."

Esther and Clélia - Project of taking over and transforming the family vineyard in Gironde

"My first fear when starting a farming project was that it would not be economically viable. Hectar, through the experience of my mentors, allowed me to challenge my business model: choosing my distribution channels, setting my sales prices, identifying the right marketing strategy, making the right tax choices."

Bastien - Project to create a processing workshop on his dairy farm in Seine-Maritime

"This program allows us to put in place effective management tools: financial plan, budget forecast, performance indicators, work organization.... The mentors' knowledge sharing is very rich. There is a great collaboration with the other entrepreneurs in the class. We already feel synergies with other project holders."

Baptiste - Project of installation in organic-intensive market gardening in Île-de-France

"The Tremplin program enabled me to follow a very enriching training course to launch my agricultural project. Today I'm in the installation phase, and all the work and support I received from Hectar during the Tremplin training helped me a lot to structure my project and get feedback to challenge it. It enabled me to assert my project, to be sure of my figures and my installation strategy."

Camille - Creation of a spice production and arboriculture business

"For us, the Tremplin training course was the missing link in the long chain of preparation for setting up a business. It gave us the confidence to go and see our bankers! Hectar's approach is modern, dynamic and positive. It's very good for morale, even if the level of requirements during the training is high and without concessions! I highly recommend it.
