Did you know that coffee grounds are one of the best growing mediums in the world? Cédric is using them to grow mushrooms in urban environments. It’s a promising initiative that forms a part of the circular economy.                           


Cédric is a social entrepreneur who, like every other entrepreneur we’ve met, is figuring things out as he goes along. He has the humility to say candidly what works and doesn’t. His motivation, his unwavering determination and his social sensibility make us think he will go far.
