EDHEC teams up with MyMajorCompany and becomes the first French school to use crowdfunding

Written on 05 June 2014.


You can take part in the crowdfundingxcampaign to help three Edhec students accomplish their objectives. The campaign was launched 5 June to coincide with the EDHEC Rendez-Vous and Retrouvailles de l'EDHEC BBA reunion events and will run until 20 July !

"EDHEC has always assisted generations of leaders and supported their best initiatives in ways other then providing training. The success achieved by our students is the best evidence of the support we provide. The current crowdfunding campaign capitalises on the solidarity between generations of students and invites them to support three EDHEC-trained talents with emblematic projects, one focused on entrepreneurship, one on the pursuit of academic excellence, and one on striking the right balance between the demands of studies and high-level sporting competition. In view of the strength of the EDHEC alumni network – over 25,000 members around the world – we chose to explore the possibilities of a crowdfunding campaign in partnership with MyMajorCompany,” explains Olivier Oger, Dean of the EDHEC Business School.

“We are particularly proud to assist such a prestigious school with this foray into digital innovation. Once again, crowdfunding shows itself to be the ideal financing solution for entrepreneurs and young people with the boldest projects”, Michaël Goldman, Chairman of MyMajor Company

Wherever you are in the world, we invite you to contribute to one of the following three projects:

The “Help an Entrepreneur” project:
€3,000 needed to fund several months of incubator assistance for a young EDHEC entrepreneur, Caroline Pailloux (GE 2005).


The “Help an Athlete” project
€3,000 to fund a scholarship for Reina Flor Okori, a student on the EDHEC BBA high-level sports track.



The “Help Achieve Academic Excellence” project:
€3,000 to fund part of an additional year of studies for Pierre Soron (GE 2016), currently a second-year student
