A new website has been launched by a group of young entrepreneurs in France who have launched a series of ambitious plans to revive the once-vast rosie industrial park, which closed decades ago and was abandoned by France’s Socialist government.
The site aims to create an economic hub for the region that will provide jobs for local people and help them build an economic future.
The project is the brainchild of a group that includes young entrepreneur Jadine Hoyer and business partner Laurent Jirard.
The website has launched and is currently accepting signups.
It also has a dedicated Facebook page with more than 4,000 members.
“We started this project as a way to give back to the region and make this a positive space for our people,” said Hoyer.
“I don’t want to be an empty gesture.
I want to live the rest of my life in a rosie like we used to do, where we built a whole town out of nothing and we are proud of it.”
The project aims to bring the town’s former industrial park back to life through a series and a variety of creative and innovative projects.
The first stage of the project will focus on building a temporary building on the site that will host a community event space, a bar, a cafe, a sports complex, a food court and more.
This second phase will see the team take over the entire park, from the surrounding area up to the top of the tower, creating a new hub of innovation and job creation.
“There are lots of projects going on in the region, but we wanted to make sure we have something we can do together,” Hoyer said.
“To make this happen, we need people who have a vision.”
The Rosie site is one of the largest industrial parks in France and one of several industrial parks that were dismantled during the Socialist government of François Hollande.
The park was demolished in 1997 following decades of economic hardship as the region was devastated by the financial crisis.
In 2015, France’s Minister of Labor, Culture and Sport Jean-Luc Valls, announced the creation of a new rosie-based investment fund, called the Roies de la Roie, which will support the development of new projects.
Hoyer’s idea to create a hub for local businesses to develop a hub of entrepreneurial activity is part of a larger plan to revitalize the region.
The Roies project is also part of the Roize project, a series that aims to make local entrepreneurs’ dreams a reality.
Hoyle and Jirart have also teamed up with French tech companies such as Facebook and Uber to help support the project.
The pair says that the project is about building a “digital hub” that is open to everyone.
“The Roies is a project that is for everybody, for the people who work in the roies and also for the citizens,” Hoyle said.
The entire project is to be funded through crowdfunding, with the team asking supporters to pledge at least €15 ($20) a month for the project to be completed.
This means that, if the crowdfunding campaign meets its goal, the project’s total cost will be around €500,000 ($634,000).
“We are talking about a whole lot of people, but the main thing is that we are working with people from all over the world,” Hoye said.
It will take more than a year for the Roys project to complete and the project hopes to be able to kick-start a series in the near future.
It has raised over €100,000 through a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, and the first batch of pledges are due to be received by mid-November.
