Entrepreneurs are not born, they are formed. Fiercely rooted in EDHEC’s entrepreneurial tradition, our programme empowers students to play a role in society by building on their own perspectives, backgrounds and identities. We believe that crafting a more desirable and inclusive world requires the innovation of genuine individuals rather than the actions of opportunists. We have designed our hands-on academic journey in such a way that innovation and entrepreneurship are not undertaken merely for the sake of it, but with a holistic understanding of the major issues of our times. The MSc in Entrepreneurship and Innovation is intertwined with the EDHEC Entrepreneurs community, which students join on day 1 of their programme. Our three incubators (Station F Paris and Jean Arnault, Lille and Nice) open up their start-ups and resources so that students can engage with and embrace the entrepreneurial ecosystem as soon as possible. Whether you aspire to create your own start-up, work in innovation or are committed to transforming society for the better, this programme will provide you with the latest intellectual and practical resources to act and flourish.

You will take three of the following five online foundational courses in the July/August period prior to arriving on campus. Depending on your background, the Selection Committee may require you to take certain classes or allow you to choose three courses from the list.
The objective of this course is to provide you with a solid grounding in the principles and practices of finance and to develop your understanding of the tools required to make good financial decisions.
This module aims to provide you with knowledge and understanding of key management issues in corporate finance and the market for financial assets.
This course objectives are to equip you with sound understanding of the fundamental concepts and vocabulary used in statistical modelling and make you aware of the powers of data analysis. It will enable you to correctly assess the validity of current techniques to common business situations, use simple Python programs to manipulate data and expressions, and confidently handle the presentation and interpretation of data using python language.
The course is designed to provide you with an overview of the foundations of financial accounting, with a practical focus on financial statement analysis and the valuation of public organisations. These foundations are deemed necessary for students to successfully pursue their studies at master's level.
The purpose of this course is to equip you with a fundamental knowledge of marketing and to demonstrate the key role that marketing plays in any organisation. You will gain a better understanding of what marketing is and its role in the firm, as well as the process of value creation from the perspective of customers, producers and society at large. You will learn how to mix various marketing tools and techniques in a coherent manner.
The primary objective of this course is to help you answer important strategic questions for companies or organisations, such as: What business will we be in? How do we compete for resources and create value? How do we organise for and assess performance?
In this course, you will focus on the complex and multidimensional nature of strategic decision-making.
Core modules are classes that must be taken by all students of the programme.
This course will help you better understand the ethical issues associated with business and the economy, more particularly related to marketing. You will learn the practical implementation of ethical standards in marketing by analysing controversial marketing campaigns and by studying innovative, ethically sound initiatives.
On completing the course, you will develop a real understanding of the types of ethical issues encountered in marketing, as well as both company and consumer responses to them. This will help you resolve key issues that arise in specific marketing ethics situations.
Communication is one of the most visible marketing tools. It is, therefore, important for students specialising in marketing to learn about communication strategies & implementation. These days, brands are omnipresent. Most companies communicate about brands rather than products. Brand management has become one of the most important key marketing missions. This class mixes both aspects: brand management and the role of communication to achieve it.
On completing the course, you will be able to perform brand diagnosis, provide recommendations and develop a communications strategy, and propose appropriate communication tools.
It is increasingly important that companies not only be able to operate their current business but be able to explore new pockets of value that could be emerging. Innovative offerings and strategies are the result of connecting previously unconnected planes of thought from within and outside the company. This course will put you in the middle of a real-life, multi-party innovation project, in which you will be challenged to develop a novel business opportunity by connecting customer desirability, technical feasibility and financial viability.
On completing the course, you will be able to leverage foresight and apply strategic design tools to develop new businesses, run a multi-client project and develop clear recommendations. A course by the EDHEC Chair for Foresight, Innovation & Transformation.
Recent IPCC reports are unequivocal about the influence of human activitý on global warming and confirm humanitý's entry into the Anthropocene era. The Anthropocene concept was introduced by (Crutzen & Stoermer, 2017) and refers to a new geological period which, according to the authors, begań at the end of the 18th century with the Industrial Revolution, and in which Man has become a major geological force capable of influencing the Earth's evolution.
The organization of current modes of production and consumption is increasingly seen as socially and ecologically, and even economically, unsustainable (Chiapello & Gilbert, 2013). Indeed, our economic system is said to underpin most of the social and human impacts on Earth (Shrivastava et al., 2019): global warming, loss of biodiversitý and ocean acidification. In this context, meeting the challenges of the Anthropocene requires a profound transformation of organizations so that they cooperate better with the Earth-system (Aggeri & Cartel, 2017)
The aim of this course is to provide students with a knowledge base on the current state of the Anthropocene from various disciplines, including the hard sciences, so that they are able to grasp the scope of their entrepreneurial choices beyond the economic sphere. To build this course, we will draw on the literature on the Anthropocene, as well as the reports by the Shift Project (Forming the actors of tomorrow's economy, 2022) and Jean Jouzel (Enseigner la transition écologique dans le supérieur, 2022).
As you will soon have the opportunity to manage projects and teams and negotiate with stakeholders in your business, this course will familiarise you with the study and practice of leadership and negotiation, namely, the art and science of influencing and motivating people to realise the strategy you have set and hope to implement. You will have the opportunity to reflect on your personal leadership and negotiation style and will learn tips and tricks on how to effectively lead and negotiate with others.
This course focuses on the financial aspects of a business plan. You will develop your knowledge of financial and managerial accounting. Once gained, this knowledge will enable you to understand and handle the main financial elements of a new business and help you convince investors to fund your startup.
Globalisation and digitalisation are dramatically transforming the way companies innovate. To be competitive in such a context, firms need to be able to innovate better and faster, relying on recent open innovation approaches based on collaboration, customer-centricity and agility. In this course, you will learn about key contemporary innovation management approaches and address a real innovation challenge in partnership with the EDHEC incubator located in Station F in Paris to develop your innovative skills.
Various phenomena are threatening knowledge and rationality: fake news, conspiracy theories, pseudo-experts questioning science, etc. The human brain is being confronted with cognitive biases and noise. Decision-makers must, therefore, increase their vigilance, especially in critical times such as a pandemic. Wrong information can lead to wrong action with serious consequences. Future managers and entrepreneurs must learn to rely on research, the systematic investigation of reality to establish facts and reach new conclusions. The business research process is a sequential process based on scientific methods and allows future managers to understand, evaluate and conduct research to improve managerial decision-making. On completing the course, you will learn to apply the principles of business research to evaluating and designing business research projects and to your master’s project. You will learn to question reality in the most rigorous and objective way to make it meaningful.
You will gain experience in and turn your knowledge of entrepreneurship and innovation into practical skills. In this coaching course, you will learn and use tools and techniques to discover problems and needs and to develop matching viable business models. You will learn to pitch ideas and business models and apply your skills in practice in diverse settings. You will demonstrate your leadership and project management skills.
Developing and fostering innovation and digital transformation remain a major concern for senior executives and managers. This course will help you develop the knowledge and skills required in managing innovation and strategic foresight and make decisions about innovative ideas. You will develop and apply strategic innovation, foresight techniques to promote sustainable business performance, research and design solutions to enhance decision-making, and effectively lead and manage innovation in corporate settings and beyond. Upon completion of the course, you will be able to leverage on foresight, innovation management tools, apply strategic design tools to develop new businesses and run a strategic foresight and innovation project and develop clear recommendations.
This course is made up of practical teaching workshops led by entrepreneurs who come and explain their responsible practices to the students before challenging them on their own projects on the issue of responsibility.
No venture subsists without financing. In the first part of this course, you will learn to build credible, evidence-based and convincing financial projections, deriving from them estimates of financial need, with a clear view of the associated risks. In the second part of this course, you will learn how to define a financing strategy to fulfil these needs, namely, valuing your enterprise, deciding when and with which vehicles to finance the venture, and negotiating a deal to suit your strategy and your capital structure objectives. On completing the course, you will learn to build and monitor credible financial projections based upon a solid business model, applied in an integrated three-statement financial model. You will be able to make informed decisions on financing choices in relation to a strategic issue and understand how capital providers assess risks, value young ventures and negotiate deals.
When growing from concept to delivery, small and entrepreneurial firms often realise that they must quickly master multiple operational topics to begin delivery and scale up their business. One of the main reasons new ventures fail is the operational aspect, where the entrepreneur fails to manage the details of running the business in an effective, efficient and efficacious manner. This course explores the key issues associated with the design and management of supply chains and operations in a small/entrepreneurial firm context and makes students apply them to their own project. On completing this course, you will know how to apply quantitative and qualitative problem-solving techniques to the management of operations.

They can also arrange to pick you up from the airport on your arrival (where possible) and take you directly to your new home. The International Students Office also organises orientation events and integration seminars to welcome international students to the EDHEC campuses.
Untangling the red tape
European Union students can live and study in France as long as they have a national ID card. No passport or visa are required.
Before arriving in France, students from outside the European Union must obtain a student visa from the French embassy in their country of origin or residence. Non-EU students must also have a valid passport from their country of origin.
One of the requirements for most visa applications is proof of accommodation in France. EDHEC's International Office is familiar with the visa formalities for most countries and will provide you with the necessary paperwork to complete. If you are concerned about your visa application, you can contact the International Office, provided you have already checked the relevant pages in the Welcome Guide and contacted your local embassy.

[Music] Title: “International Students Office”
I just got accepted at EDHEC business school. Now I need to organise my arrival and find
accommodation. Luckily the international students office helped me all along this process.
All good, I'm ready. It is now time to reach France. On arrival, three key moments are organised to help me settle in: the welcome session, the services fair and the integration day.
I get a lot of practical information on different topics such as health insurance, public transportation, life in the city, and so on.
I met representatives from different EDHEC departments and partners during the service fair.
I participate in group activities, meet new friends and discover the campus.
Throughout the year, I visit ISO whenever I need assistance in my daily life in France.
Time flies, my experience at EDHEC is coming to an end. The international student office has been of great support before and during my stay, and it will remain available even after my departure.
Thank you to the International Student Office - Camilla Garcia Biel
[Music] A big “Thank you” to the International Student Office.
Camilla Garcia Biel. MiM Business Management student. Class of 2022.
So my name is Camila Garcia Biel. I'm a 26 year old international student from Peru, I'm doing the MiM track which is a three-year-long programme. The first year, you start with basic courses, with administrative courses. Then there is a year for professional immersion, and then I specialised in strategic finance and commercial intelligence. The most important thing is that out of all the business schools in France, EDHEC was the only one to come to Lima and actually meet the prospective students. After that I was completely sold. As soon as I knew that I was gonna come here, I was enrolled et cetera.
The first contact you have is with the international student office and they absolutely help you with everything. Starting with the visa process, with the housing process... They also help with anything you really need.
So arriving in France, what surprised me, for very good like very positive, was the international environment that I experienced living in the residence and coming to school. I was immediately in contact with people from different countries that I had never seen. And what scared me a little bit, was that the French level that i had before coming and the French level needed to be here. The gap was obvious, but people, especially in Lille, were very nice when I was trying to communicate with them. Even if i was using some english words or even some spanish words, they were really nice.
The reason why I chose France as my home, is that it's the perfect balance from a latino point of view of the latin culture and the european culture. In the daylight you can see the difference and in the nightlife you can see the similarities. Differences and similarities that, at the end, really helped me develop myself as a person. And I think that's something that every international goes through and learns from. My first memory at EDHEC, it's the full day as i call it. It's the first day that we gather in the main hall and then we have outdoors activities, and then we eat together, they introduce us to the programme, they introduce us to the school. Being able to experience the location and the classes and the buildings, which are amazing, it's like a reality shock but a very positive one.
So if i had the all the amazing team from the ISO or the international student office members in front of me, the first thing that i would say would be definitely "thank you"!
Thank you, and thank you... Thank you for your help, thank you for your patience, thank you for your time. They really make the difference in the transition. The job that they're doing in that assistance, it's beyond what I've heard from other friends from other schools, from even other countries. For example, during the pandemic, they were very active and they helped us. And they sent us links for call centres, in case you needed to talk to someone, like psychological call centres and nutritionists, like they really take care of us in a very global aspect. I would just say thank you many times. The international office helps us because for example, they organise different cultural nights. The school has a lot of associations and many of them work with international students, for example ,there's one called "Open Up" and they organise trips for international students. There are many ways to feel not or not feel homesick, and at the end of the course, it's a very amazing place to make amazing friends and that also helps.

How to finance your Master’s?
As part of its strategic plan to "Impact Future Generations", EDHEC has committed to enabling talented students to pursue their studies through a diverse and transparent scholarship scheme. The French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs also offers a large number of grants and scholarships, and there are numerous bodies worldwide supporting the study of international students wishing to embark on a master’s programme. Below is a comprehensive overview of the scholarships, grants and loans available.
EDHEC Business School's comprehensive scholarship scheme aimed at MIM & MSC candidates
So my name is Michelle Sisto I am the associate Dean for graduate studies at EDHEC Business School. So within that perimeter, it englobes the PhD programme, our
programme Grande Ecole, Master in Management and all of our specialised MSc programmes.
[Music] “What types of scholarships and financial aid does EDHEC offer to international students?”
Regarding scholarships available for international students, and even for our French students, EDHEC has a strong belief in making education possible for students coming from diverse horizons, backgrounds, and have both the economic levels and what they studied previously, regional differences, and so we've put in place a multitude of opportunities for scholarships to encourage that diversity in our classrooms. We have some scholarships that are academic merit-based, aiming for excellence in the profile of students. We have some scholarships that are more oriented for particular regional areas, and we have some scholarships that are also oriented towards diversity. For example, women in finance and women in data science, where we see that we still don't have a sufficient number of women in those areas in the profession, and also in the programmes. And then we also have scholarships
that can be requested, when students are actually in the programme, should there be an instance where somebody's situation changes dramatically while they're already a student here. We have a special commission that looks at changes in the situation for exceptional scholarships.
[Music] “What is a merit-based scholarship and what are the selection criteria?”
So our merit-based scholarships are really based on the profile of our candidates. What we're looking at, when students apply to our programme Grande Ecole and to our MSc programmes, we're looking at their full profile. So their academic background, how they perform in their previous academic studies… We're looking at things like their score on GMAT or the TAGE MAGE or the CAT exam, some kind of aptitude test. We're also looking at the type of school that they went to previously, but that's not the major issue.
It's really where they were. Did they perform really well? And as EDHEC academic excellence is a key driving force for education, we want to offer scholarships to encourage those types of profiles to come to EDHEC. Because we know they have choices amongst diverse, very strong schools, and our aim is to bring the very brightest and the best to EDHEC.
[Music] “How does EDHEC approach need-based scholarships for international students?
For need-based scholarships, we have one system for our French students, and then for international students, we're looking at the profiles of our students. What we will look at
is, what is their overall situation, what is their profile and how can we make an offer to them that would render their participation and education in EDHEC more feasible for them.
[Music] “Describe EDHEC’s new approach to scholarships”
As I mentioned earlier EDHEC really believes in bringing diverse and excellent profiles to our school, and so our approach in terms of scholarships is evermore going in the direction of diversity and inclusion. So we're currently offering, as I mentioned, a scholarship for women in data science and in finance. We also have scholarships that are called the “make and impact” scholarship, and “make an impact” is our tagline at EDHEC. Our strategic plan is really EDHEC for future generations, and so we're looking for this “make an impact” scholarship, for students who have shown in the past that they're willing to engage in their local communities and environmental projects. With coming to EDHEC, the education that they're going to receive here, is going to propel them forward to the next step where they'll make an impact, a further impact, and so what we do for that scholarship is, we ask students to apply with an essay and tell us something about what they've done in the past and where they wish to go. And so for those students, we have a special scholarship. We're also looking to increase now, in line with our strategic plan, for greater diversity and inclusion on socioeconomic as well as cultural, regional, gender differences, and expand our portfolio of scholarships. So we're working on offering more scholarships for high potential women, specific scholarships for certain regions. In terms of regional scholarships we already have some for example: with the French embassy in India we have a special scholarship that pays up to 15 percent of students tuition fees, likewise in Russia with a scholarship that's a hundred percent for a student applying for an MSc with an excellent profile. We work with Campus France. We also have Eiffel scholarships. In Colombia for example, we work with local players like ColFuturo and there's lots of information on the website so anyone who's wishing to apply to EDHEC should definitely look at the “financing your studies” part and reach out to our admissions team to get more information as to what financing is available from their particular region. As we move forward, we will continue to expand this offer both in terms of the number of scholarships and in terms of the amount.
Currently EDHEC issues about 5 million euros in scholarships every year across our graduate studies. About a quarter of all of our students do receive some type of financial aid, and part of our plan moving forward is to expand that to an even higher percentage of students. And for some of our students, to go all the way up to 75% of tuition fees that would be covered for those who are the most in need, notably students coming from particular backgrounds or potentially zones of conflict, or refugees and, or recent immigrants from areas that have been touched negatively by world events.
[Music] “Why is diversity important to EDHEC? How does it relate to your mission to make an impact?”
Well thank you for that question, I think that you know we're in the age that we're living in right now, we've seen that diversity and inclusion is a global issue. We have some researchers within our school, who study the positive impact of diversity and inclusion on the performance of companies. But we believe that diversity and inclusion is essential, to bring a diversity of perspectives to solving some of the major societal stakes that we're facing right now, the challenges that we're facing. So what do we mean by that? Now when we talk about women in finance and women in data science, with the algorithms that are currently directing quite a bit of our lives right now. If the data that goes into those algorithms or the people who are writing those algorithms are not representative of the society at large, then we may end
up with situations where they're detrimental to certain aspects of certain groups in society.
Algorithms that scan CVs, algorithms that give us suggestions for what we should be reading or watching or eating even. So I think that diversity is necessary to have a more equitable society. Things like climate change, bringing together people who come from diverse backgrounds around the world, seeing how its impacts differ around the world and how we can globally work together to find solutions. Of course the strongest element recently is the global pandemic, and we can see that something like this can only be solved by global collaboration.
So bringing together people from all over the world and these diverse perspectives, what we hope to do is to encourage our students to grow into leaders with a global perspective, in order to collaboratively solve some of the big problems that we're facing now.
“Are your scholarships fee waivers only or do you also offer financial support for travel, housing, and other study expenses?”
Currently EDHEC’s scholarships focus on the tuition fees, although some of the people that we partner with do offer stipends for living, for example the Eiffel scholarship. To be eligible for the Eiffel scholarship, students need to apply and be admitted before early December but that is a scholarship that is within the French ministry and that covers about 1200 euros a month stipend for students in order to cover living expenses, rent…and there are some scholarships that also look at fees for the flights to and from France. So it varies but the bulk of our scholarships are really just focused on the tuition fees.
[Music] “Any scholarship application tips you’d like to offer?”
My first tip would be to make a request. Don't hesitate to make a request. As they often say: if you don't ask, you certainly don't receive. So not to be shy in reaching out and aiming for one of our scholarships. I think another tip would be, for the scholarships that require essays, to take the time to build an essay that really responds to the question that's asked for the particular scholarship, and make it quite personal. What we want to do, when we're evaluating these essays, is get to know the person behind that essay. What's their real desire to make an impact for example, if it's in line with the sustainable development goals, and convince us
that you're somebody who would bring your expertise, your enthusiasm, your drive, and your values to our community, here at EDHEC. And lastly, I would say, be absolutely authentic in what you say and what you write.
[Music] “Is there anything else you’d like to share?”
So I'd just like to add, that you know, beyond the direct scholarships that we've talked about here, at EDHEC there's an institution-wide number of initiatives in order to offer our education and render education more affordable to a wide group of candidates. For example, in our undergraduate programmes, there are students working on a programme that's called “Cordée de la réussite”, where they're going into local high schools, that tend to have and be in areas, that are considered considered disadvantaged or that don't have as high proportion
that go into higher education, to encourage those students to believe that they can access and succeed in higher education. And then we offer up to 75 percent of fees for students who come through that path. In addition, over the last year, I think one area that we're very happy with and grateful for, is during the pandemic we made a call out to all of our alumni and to some of our corporate partners to request additional funding for direct additional scholarships to students. Unfortunately, we had a number of students over time whose family situations changed. Either their family business had a problem or that sadly there was some severe illness or even death in the family. So we wanted to make sure that those difficult events didn't also have an impact on our students' ability to continue with their education. And our alumni really stood up to the call and we raised close to a half a million euros for direct additional aid to our students. So I think there's a very strong sense of community at EDHEC,
and we hope that the students for whom we can make this extra offer available, will continue to be part of that community as they move on to their careers afterwards, and be part of a virtuous cycle of ongoing financing of studies for everyone.
Scholarships and financial aid can be critical factors when it comes to embarking on a master’s programme, so we aim to make the process as simple as possible. All candidates who are accepted are automatically considered for an EDHEC scholarship. The decision of the Scholarship Committee will be conveyed by email in tandem with the admissions decision.

[Musique] salut Valentine
merci de nous recevoir dans ton atelier
est-ce que tu pourrais te présenter ?
oui bien sûr. Je m'appelle Valentine Robin j'ai 24 ans et je suis la fondatrice D'Akho.
peux-tu nous rappeler le concept de ton entreprise ?
Alors AKHOc'est une marque de prêt-à-porter française qui a pour ambition de démocratiser la motte circulaire on récupère des chutes de grandes maisons invendus donc des stocks qui sont là depuis les années 20 aux années 70 et on a fait des collections limitées inspirées par les pays du monde et par le savoir-faire.
est-ce que tu pourrais nous dire la fonction de cet atelier
ici nous sommes à Noisy-le-Sec à moins d'un kilomètre de Paris et c'est dans cet atelier de confection textile que sont faites toutes les pièces AKHO en ce moment nous sommes en pleine phase de prototypage de la collection hiver
Pourquoi avoir choisi de produire des vêtements de façon durable ?
Produire des vêtements de façon durable c'est la mission et les valeurs d'AKHO depuis le 1er jour. L'industrie textile est très très polluante tout le monde le sait et ça me tenait vraiment à cœur d'apporter ma pierre à l'édifice et de construire avec les acteurs engagés une industrie textile plus durable.
que signifie pour toi le succès entrepreneurial ?
L succès entrepreneurial c'est voir les actions directes concrètes des actions qu'on mène au quotidien et c'est vrai que c'est ce qui me fait me lever tous les matins avec AKHO.
A quel moment t'es-tu rendu compte que ton entreprise avait du succès ?
Alors je trouve ça super difficile d'attester du succès de sa propre entreprise mais la première fois où j'étais vraiment fière de moi c'est quand j'ai commencé à recevoir les photos de mes clients qui portaient mes produits et qui me disaient que c'était des produits qui garderaient longtemps et qui portent surtout dans des moments importants.
comment tu définirais ton quotidien ?
alors c'est assez particulier mais je dirais que c'est du saut de haie parce que l'entrepreneuriat c'est pas facile il y a énormément de choses qui nous arrivent tout au long de la journée et on y va étape par étape on franchit les obstacles un par un et on finit finalement toujours parler au bout et nous voici maintenant dans le troisième arrondissement de Paris.
est-ce que tu peux nous dire où nous nous dirigeons ?
oui bien sûr nous nous dirigions vers la Caravelle qui est une boutique qui ouvrira la semaine prochaine au cœur de Paris qui sera à la fois un lieu d'exposition et à la fois un lieu de vie.
Valentine quel est le mot que tu prononces le plus chaque jour ?
je pense qu'aujourd'hui le mot que j'utilise le plus c'est merci. c'est vrai que de au fil des mois au fil des semaines même au fil des jours l'équipe s'agrandit je travaille avec des freelances avec des alternants avec des stagiaires avec des vraies partenaires et c'est à cause c'est grâce à eux aujourd'hui donc je leur dis très régulièrement merci. créer une sorte responsable parce que ça a été à l'origine de ton projet entrepreneurial oui complètement en fait AKHO est né d'un tour du monde auquel j'ai eu la chance de visiter une usine textile en Afrique du Sud et j'ai assisté à une destruction énorme de tissu, de tissus neuf qui n'avait finalement pas été utilisé. ça a été un vrai déclic. après ça, après mon retour en France, j'ai décidé de créer une marque sans avoir à créer de nouvelles matières avec un sourcing intégralement circulaire pour éviter la pollution due à la création de nouveaux tissus, que cela change quelque chose par rapport à un modèle d'entreprise classique. oui par rapport à un modèle d'entreprise classique c'est vrai que le sourcing intégralement circulaire donc je récupère des tissus qui sont neufs qui ont déjà été produit qui ne sont pas produits pour moi et ça évite 90% d'impact environnemental sur la création du vêtement final que signifie être une entreprise innovante aujourd'hui aujourd'hui être une entreprise innovante sans avoir prendre en compte les problématiques qui existent à un moment T écoutez ce qui s'y connaissent et apporter une solution durable responsable et éthique de vêtements qui continue de se sourcer de façon 100% circulaire qui continue de développer de petites séries numérotées une marque qui collabore avec des artistes qui continuent de s'inspirer des pays du monde et du savoir-faire et une marque qui se propage à l'international bon je vous ai parlé de la Caravelle je montre [Musique]
quelle a été la critique la plus dure à encaisser lorsque tu t'es lancé
s'il n'y arriveras jamais seul est-ce que tu peux nous présenter le concept de ta boutique alors la Caravelle c'est une boutique éco-responsable située dans le troisième arrondissement de Paris que je partage avec réel Paris une marque de lingerie maillot de bain et Little courte une marque de bijoux et on sera amené à intégrer de façon régulière des marques éphémères il y a à la fois un espace boutique et un espace bureau
est-ce qu'il y a une personnalité qui t'a donné envie d'entreprendre
je pense que la personnalité qui m'a poussé à entreprendre c'est Mike Horn parce qu'il va toujours au-delà des sentiers battus et qui m'a vraiment poussé à y aller quand je m'en sentais pas forcément capable un conseil avant de se lancer dans une aventure entrepreneuriale bien écouter les autres bien s'entourer et savoir se faire confiance est-ce que tu peux nous dire quel est le dernier livre qui t'a inspiré le livre du fondateur de Patagonia parce que c'est quelqu'un qui a un train cinq mots responsable et qui ne divergent jamais par rapport à sa vision merci Valentine de nous avoir partagé ton histoire et nous avoir accueilli dans ta boutique merci à vous de m'avoir écouté et à très vite [Musique]
