Abstract

The CAE brings together entrepreneur-employees whose activities may or may not have links between them. There is another loss aversion faced by microentrepreneurs in developed countries such as France: the fear of losing their dole. The CAE brings together people wanting to start their own businesses, and those who want to test the viability of their projects. According to recent law, entrepreneurs would have to decide in three years whether they want to become members of the cooperative or leave and set up their independent activity. In providing a long-term salary contract to the entrepreneur, the CAE is effectively providing him a professional identity.

Keywords: Governance; cooperatives; social innovation; microentrepreneurship; transfer pricing, shared service
