By | February 2, 2017

 


The “Technology Venture Master Program” at Ecole Polytechnique – in partnership with the Direction for Entrepreneurship and Innovation (our incubator and accelerator) at Ecole Polytechnique, as well as with the student association “Cabinet Startup”  – organises a series of such Master Classes.

The next Master Class is happening on February 7, 2017, at 18h00 in the Drahi-X-Novation Center of l’Ecole Polytechnique.

Access is open to everybody, but as there’s limited seating (and this promises to be an exciting event), registration is necessary, on this link.

The speaker, Jean-Michel Deligny, will delight us with a talk entitled “From (Local) Start-up to (International) Scale-up”

Entrepreneurship is everywhere. And startups are being set up at record number. What does it take to make a success of it? How the European venture financing market has changed in the last 5 years ? Who are the venture investors in France and in Europe? Who are the successful companies
