Reconnect - Fight against exclusion[Essay] by Marine Bikard


Marine Bikard was part of the “Alternative Management” third year program in HEC in 2010. Having a passion for social sciences, she would like to use their methods and concepts to improve the action of companies.

Reconnect is an association whose mission is to fight against the exclusion of people in France thanks to the use of new information technologies.

Reconnect’s main service is therefore to give access to a permanent phone number, which price would vary between zero or ten Euros per trimester.
