On this symbolic date, Sascha Kunkel, President, Jean-Pierre Bontoux, Founding President, and Aliaksei Androuchkin, Flag Bearer, proudly represented the Amicale LEGIOPRENEUR at the commemoration of the Battle of Camerone in Aubagne.

Strengthening Ties

In the presence of many of its members, the Amicale took time to exchange ideas and forge strong links with other Amicales sharing the same values, with a view to creating future collaborations.

A year of honour developing this Amicale, surrounded by dedicated people, legionnaires, sympathizers and civilians, to bring this project to fruition.

The main aim is to bring together former Legionnaires who are heads of companies and entrepreneurs, to strengthen the bonds of camaraderie and confraternity between former Legionnaires and to maintain friendly relations with the active formations of the Foreign Legion.

Our best actions :

  • Evacuation of Legionnaire’s family in Afghanistan
  • Evacuation and help for several families in Ukraine
  • Hiring and housing assistance for several legionnaires
  • Invitation to a dozen residents of the Institut des Invalides de la Légion Etrangère to the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters tennis tournament by Legiopreneur godmother, Mlle Mélanie-Antoinette de Massy
  • Fundraising for the Foyer d’Entraide de la Légion Étrangère
  • Various events (Cocktail Legiopreneur, Noël Legiopreneur in Puyloubier, Noël in Auriol, Camerone 2022…)
  • Assistance and referral for the sale of an apartment whose proceeds were donated to ELEF
  • Partnership and mutual support with several Amicales d’Anciens de la Légion Étrangère
  • Puppy adoption from Puyloubier
  • Legiopreneur members donate prizes for the 1st RE raffle

Today LEGIOPRENEUR in a few figures is :

  • 57 active members
  • Grants and Donations of around €50,000 for various social actions
  • 5 continents represented by our members
  • 82% of entrepreneurs
  • 67% former Foreign Legion personnel

Over the past 1 year, we have been able to forge links and partnerships with and between international professional bodies and professionals from all trades.

We are proud of and grateful to our President, Sascha Kunkel, our Founding President, Jean-Pierre Bontoux, our Godmother, Mlle Mélanie-Antoinette de Massy, the members of our office, all our members and the people who have played an important role in our Amicale during this first year.

We’re working hard to make our Amicale grow, and we’re counting on your support.

Long live Legiopreneur !
