stems from an innovative association of great style and bold
entrepreneurship. This approach perfectly finds its expression in the Prix

“Together, AMI and IFM are committed to involving young people, to
encourage them to initiate the decision process, by raising awareness for
the limitless opportunities they can generate as entrepreneurs. Initiating
this project, giving free rein to the entrepreneurial spirit of the next
generation of leaders, is a huge source of pride for me.”
