The studio


Eclosion is a non-profit charity founded in September 2020 by Fabien de Castilla and Christophe Cote. It is created around an innovative idea: replicate the “startup studio” model on the impact domain.

The team, formed by five people, is gathered around the co-directing pair Agnès de Rauglaudre and Pierre de Rauglaudre. Eclosion also includes a board of directors composed of personalities rooted in the agency and impact world. The first batch of five entrepreneurs launched in September 2021. Furthermore, the whole team and its entrepreneurs share the same ambition: start the socially innovative businesses of the hereafter, the ones who will "change the world."

The Eclosion team - founders and co-directors.
