The incubation


What is the purpose of the incubation programme? It is designed to challenge you, and to encourage you to debate as well as interact with others to develop your startup and accelerate your impact on the world. For one year, at Station F in Paris or the Jean Arnault Campus in Lille, we and our partners will be there to support you. Ready to take the plunge with us?

A personalized and complete programme for responsible business practices




We are convinced that collective intelligence is key to building the companies of tomorrow. That's why we offer:

  • Every month, a Program Manager is assigned to each startup for a special discussion and follow-up.

  • A dedicated personal mentor for each startup. An EDHEC alumni (selected by us according to their business expertise) accompanies you for 6 months.

  • Face to face meetings with qualified professionals from our network of over 200 experts (45 hours of monthly sessions).


 360° approach


Structuring the company, finding its first customers, financing it, promoting it, hiring its first employees, building a product, developing its impact on the world: for each of these 7 strategic business creation pillars, we guide you. How do we do this? By providing for each pillar:

  • Dedicated and renowned experts.

  • A library of exclusive content. For example, "The startup from a legal perspective".

  • Partners who bring you additional resources on each pillar according to their expertise.

  • Knowledge that we will assess together. So that you leave with a strong foundation.

  • Collective events and highlights related to each pillar.

mot Sibylle incubateur

A word from Sibylle, Incubation Program Manager


“I have always had great admiration for entrepreneurs: their determination, their resilience, the risks they take by embarking on this exciting but risky adventure... In my opinion, being supported by your peers and benefiting from a caring community is a real asset! It will guide and challenge entrepreneurs throughout their journey. This is what we offer in our incubator. 


My goal? To provide you with the most value during your incubation year. How can I do this? By interacting with you on a daily basis to try to identify your needs and challenges. I will then be able to put you in touch with the relevant resources to unblock problem areas and take you as far as possible."
