EDHEC Entrepreneurs and its team are very pleased to welcome 17 new startups; that is to say 41 entrepreneurs who are joining the EDHEC incubator. From our new entrepreneurial campus inaugurated in July 2021, the Jean Arnault Campus in Lille, or from Station F in Paris, these entrepreneurs will have access to a complete and personalized support program, in an ideal working environment.
Following a demanding selection process, 25 startups were invited to pitch in front of a prestigious jury, including key players in the startup ecosystem. 17 startups were selected based on the quality of their application, the potential of their project and the strength of their team. This record-breaking bacth for the incubator illustrates the growth dynamic that EDHEC Entrepreneurs is experiencing.
The EDHEC Entrepreneurs team is delighted to welcome these 17 new recruits:
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!
We would like to thank the members of the jury for their participation, their kindness and their precious advice during the selection pitches:
Patrick Amiel (321Founded), Farida Poulain (Kanupa), Emilie Benayad (Serena), Alice Guédel (Partech), Olivier de Mendez (Godiva), Simon Guichard (Argos Wityu), Benoit Arnaud (EDHEC), Denis Dauchy (EDHEC), Georges Lahoud (Coca-Cola), César Chanut (OneRagtime), Hélène Brichet Herbinet (Yahoo), Carole Chomat (EDHEC), Pierre Dumas (Isai), Marc Sudreau (Chausson Finance), Ludovic Cailluet (EDHEC), Florian Dadre (Uplaw), Angélique Elizé (Raise Ventures), Claire Castel (Bpifrance), Benjamin Pedrini (Epsor) and Alexandre Salvanet (Gibson Dunn).
We would also like to thank Benjamin Pedrini, founder of the startup Espor, for his inspiring speech during the onboarding session, which helped kick off this great adventure!
