Big Bloom is a non-profit association under the French law of 1901. Its members are the organisers of Big Bloom hackathons for Good.
We are a “social franchise”: access to the Big Bloom method, ecosystem and brand is free for members. Our goal is to have an impact.
Members are generally coaches, consultants, designers, or trainers, freelancers or employees in small organisations. At the beginning of 2023, the Big Bloom association has 17 members: 5 in France and12 internationally.
The project is directed by Marie Van Gucht and Yvan Gatignon. They run both the association and the Big Bloom Paris company, a cooperative that organises large international hackathons and provides support to the organisers. Big Bloom Paris has 8 employees.
