Hello, my name is Anne-Charlotte and I am the founder from Spiky Community. Spiky's objective is make easier the reception and inclusion of all newcomers to France. How ? By bringing together and categorizing all the key information, actors and tools to settle, live and create links in France easily. And all this in a single free and multilingual mobile application.
In 2021, after more than 3 years as a digital project manager in a start-up in the e-health sector, I decide to embark on the entrepreneurial adventure. I join the Singa Lyon incubator to test a first prototype of the application.
In September 2022, a first version of the application is launched in Lyon, Paris, Lille and Marseille. Since March 2023, I have been accompanied by the Singa Paris business accelerator!🚀
For the little story: Upon my return to France after two years living abroad, I live the reverse culture shock. I miss the richness of intercultural exchanges, I need to meet people from different backgrounds. So I decide to get closer to foreign people nearby to share experiences and help them get settled. I then realize the complexity of the formalities to settle in France: a real administrative jungle with its millions of information to decode... Spiky Community is born.
A little anecdote about the project? In English "Spiky" means "pointed". Calling the application "Spiky Community" is for me a way of encouraging people to come to grips with differences, not to be afraid of them and to see them as a great asset! The hedgehog logo come naturally to complete the name 🦔
