Discover the 2024 intake of new companies joining the IÉSEG Incubator

Every year, the IÉSEG Incubator supports more than a hundred start-ups, providing students, graduates and staff with the best conditions for successfully launching and developing their businesses. 

Present on the Lille and Paris – La Défense campuses, the Incubator offers 3 specific programs to support each entrepreneur according to the degree of maturity and progress of his or her entrepreneurial project, and makes all the resources available within the School. 

The “SPARK” program is designed for all entrepreneurs looking to test the soundness of their idea and structure their vision. The “START” program is a 12-month program designed to launch a business, acquire the first customers and develop sales. This program is aimed at young entrepreneurs with a proven concept who want to successfully launch their company. Finally, the “SCALE” program meets the needs of entrepreneurs who have been in business for at least 2 years and want to speed up their growth by conquering new markets or new geographical territories.

In each of these programs, the Incubator provides personalized, caring support. Meetings with entrepreneurship experts, group workshops on specific themes, access to office space, conferences and brainstorming sessions between incubatees and partners, fortnightly follow-up with a coach-mentor, networking events to develop your network, contacts to create opportunities within the IÉSEG ecosystem: all these elements make up the customized support offered by the IÉSEG Incubator.
