A look back at this exciting onboarding session!

On Wednesday, January 10, the Winter 2022 batch enjoyed a special onboarding session that included discussions with their new colleagues for the next 12 months, presentations by the EDHEC Entrepreneurs team and Station F, and feedback from a successful entrepreneur, Benjamin Pedrini, founder of the startup Epsor.

 

 

The entrepreneurs discovered the many resources they will benefit from throughout their incubation year.  On the agenda? Personalized coaching, face-to-face meetings with experts (Marketing, Sales, Financing, Growth, etc.), thematic workshops, co-development workshops or a dedicated mentor for instance.

But the main goal of this day was to bring together this new batch of entrepreneurs. Very quickly, bonds were created and the beginnings of strong relationships were born. This year promises to be rich!
