French Riviera Institute

The French Riviera Institute (FRI) strives to bring together business leaders and visionaries of faith to encourage collaboration and the free exchange of ideas.

Christophe Machard, president of the FRI, originally launched the project after he saw the necessity to motivate Christian entrepreneurs to openly display their faith and to deepen their desire to evangelize.  These believers need to know they aren’t alone and that other faithful business leaders share their convictions.

By hosting yearly meetings, the FRI provides an environment that fosters friendships and fellowship amongst these entrepreneurs; the event is also open to their spouses to attend. The three-day conferences are marked by a spiritual atmosphere, with several times a day of devotionals and prayer.

Our guest speakers – inspiring personalities – give practical techniques, methods and ideas to develop projects, invest resources and take action for the greater good.

For its next conference, the French Riviera Institute will focus on the company as a tool for action in the battle for truth and evangelism all around the world.
