Josephine is a student from the ESCP Europe Business School. During her gap year, she had classic professional experience in food marketing at Danone and Unilever. However, after a 3 month trip to India to meet social entrepreneurs, she felt passionate about the issues of innovation and social entrepreneurship. During one semester of study in Argentina, she works as a volunteer for the NGO Un Techo Para Mi Pais, and comes back to France with the will to invest in social issues in France. Josephine finishes her studies with the Alternative Management specialization program at HEC Paris. For her last internship, she chose to work on the Ticket for Change project, an entrepreneurship program which aims at encouraging vocations of social entrepreneurs in France.

On the way to social innovation is about Hugues Sibille’s career, who is the endless defender of social and solidarity-based economy in France. The book is written as an interview, which leads us to discover the actions and experiences of this day-to-day involved person to develop this more human economy. With a realistic and pragmatic point of view, he gives us lots of examples to illustrate his vision of this alternative economy. He also identifies very clearly the future issues of the social and solidarity-based economy
