Evolem, a philanthropic entrepreneur
The vision of entrepreneur Bruno Rousset is founded on societal commitment, so Evolem has been taking action in the public interest domain for many years. We take a philanthropic entrepreneurial approach which can be seen through the creation, guidance and support offered to non-profit, high-impact initiatives. We focus on a limited number of projects in order to foster high-quality partnerships which are conducive to their development. Evolem staff members devote their skills (strategy, finance, communications, etc.) and time to the benefit of the projects supported in order to uphold our community values.

Specific areas of involvement

Our philanthropic work focuses on 5 areas and is supported by the patronage of Evolem and two dedicated endowment funds: Evolem Citoyen and Domorrow.
  • Integration and access to employment for young people (Evolem Citoyen endowment fund)
  • Environment and ecological transition (Domorrow family endowment fund)
  • Fighting insecurity
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Culture
