Devised for students with start-up projects on the Pre-Master and Master 1 years of the Master in Management programme, the Start-Up Challenge sees participants reap the benefit of individual coaching, master classes and collective workshops, and take part in a nationwide competition. The Start-Up Challenge provides a fantastic opportunity for participants to attempt an entrepreneurial adventure, test their ideas and excel themselves, while continuing with their studies.
27 students (Lille & Nice) were selected to join the programme that began in January 2021. The closing presentation provided a means to identify the three best projects:
- HOMIE (Olivier Carpentier): A delivery app for homemade meals.
- SYNE (Victoire Bossard, Emma Ventre and Théo Anneheim): An app for the arts, sharing and having fun.
- RETROC (Martin Liduena and Melchior Staszak): An app that reinvents bartering.
EDHEC Entrepreneurs incubator offered the students a half-day immersion at Station F. Sibylle Behaghel, EDHEC programme manager at Station F, gave them a full tour of this inspiring start-up campus:
- The SHARE zone devoted to meeting people, events, public services and more.
- The CREATE zone devoted to start-ups, with its 3,000 work stations.
- The CHILL zone devoted to La Felicità, an immense food market where everything is 100% homemade: 4,500m2, 8 kitchens, 9 chefs, 3 bars and 1,000 seats.
The students also discovered the strengths of the EDHEC Entrepreneurs programme: an exceptional network of experts and mentors, individualised support, partnerships, conviviality and a strong spirit of mutual help within our incubator. A total of 29 EDHEC start-ups are currently reaping the benefit of this exceptional ecosystem as they develop their start-up projects.
The students were impressed by their visit to this exceptional campus:
La découverte et la visite de ce campus exceptionnel a séduit les étudiants :
A workshop assembling three EDHEC start-ups engaged on our STUDIO programme at Station F (Les Actives, Fany Store, Joodi) and the six student finalists provided the opportunity for a real cross-fertilisation of ideas around key subjects associated with emerging projects and start-ups.
To support these three high-potential student projects, the EDHEC Entrepreneurs incubator also awarded these future gems a booster pack worth €2,000. The made-to-measure pack was designed specifically to respond to the needs of emerging projects and comprises consulting appointments with:
A well-known law firm
A growth hacking expert
A marketing & communications director
A digital strategy expert
A specialist automation start-up
A consultant experienced in financial business plans
A venture capital partner
Some 10 negotiated perks
