Long-established relations between La Caisse d’Epargne Hauts de France and IÉSEG School of Management were strengthened further during the Digital Networking on July 3 in Lille, when the two establishments announced a new partnership to focus on new challenges such as entrepreneurship, digital developments and social engagement.

In the framework of this new partnership, the following actions related to these 3 themes are scheduled:

Entrepreneurship: La Caisse d’Epargne Hauts de France becomes a partner of the IÉSEG Incubator. The incubators, located both on the Lille and Paris-La Défense campuses, provide a certain number of startups with a workspace and dedicated professional support, allowing them to grow and develop. La Caisse d’Epargne Hauts de France will contribute to the entrepreneurship track at the School with presentations from experts in classes, coachings and workshops. It will also be a sponsor of the annual IÉSEG entrepreneurship competition.

Digital developments: The two partners will organize digital strategy workshops centered on case studies and best practices in the field. La Caisse d’Epargne will also be associated with IÉSEG during its participation in different events related to digital developments in the banking and insurance sectors.

Social engagement: An expert from La Caisse d’Epargne Hauts de France will be part of the ICOR (IÉSEG Center for Organizational Responsibility) Prize jury. Every year, this prize is awarded to the IÉSEG student dissertation that best incorporates an original contribution to organizational ethics and social responsibility. In addition, the company will contribute to the activities of the ICOR Center, whose mission is to conduct and coordinate different School reflections and actions related to CSR training and research.

Michaël KERVRAN, member of La Caisse d’Epargne Hauts de France Board of Directors: “La Caisse d’Epargne Hauts de France would like to develop its network with the digital ecosystem of the region (startups, FrenchTechs, Incubators, etc.), accompany entrepreneurs, promote the spirit of entrepreneurship and reinforce its development in digital expertise, all the while remaining very active with the CSR plan.”

Sophie GUERIN, Corporate Relations Director at IÉSEG, explains: “We are delighted to reinforce our historic partnership with La Caisse d’Epargne Hauts de France. For IÉSEG, this initiative is part of our constant endeavor to develop student and alumni support, and to pursue our 2025 Vision ‘empowering changemakers for a better society.’”

“Moreover, we have more and more students and alumni who are interested in entrepreneurship and business creation. This partnership will thus help IÉSEG continue to develop its entrepreneurship within its training programs and incubator.”
