Passionate about sports? With her app, Marjorie Daniel helps you become a volunteer at competitions
The selection committee for the Business with Attitude – Madame Figaro award has selected 12 semi-finalists. Marjorie Daniel, co-founder of Volunteers 4 Sport, offers tools for recruiting and managing volunteers at sporting events. She is a candidate for the Potentielles prizes, created in partnership with Diversidays.
The starting point? « The organizers of sporting events are short of arms, but it is difficult to find volunteer assignments, because the environment works by word of mouth, » sums up Marjorie Daniel. His company bought and markets the Vol’Up 2.0 software, already used in major competitions. For €1,000 per month, this software allows federations and organizers of sporting events to recruit, train and manage their volunteers.

Volunteers 4 Sport also offers consulting assignments and has just launched the Bénévole Connect app. The organizers can publish missions there, against 95 €, with a community of enthusiasts that must now be built. “We are targeting young people, to whom volunteering can provide a valuable network and skills for their professional career.” In short, this young company wants to offer a unique and complete interface to all those involved in volunteering. And intends to participate in the Paris 2024 Olympics, which are fast approaching.
Why she ?
For the tenacity with which she created and then carried her business a few months before the pandemic.
