IESEG Entrepreneur Prize: Discover the 2021 Edition’s Winners
On Thursday, May 20, 2021, five companies represented by IÉSEG alumni/students auditioned (online) during the final of the sixth edition of the IÉSEG Entrepreneur competition* : Revlys founded by Axel FENAUX and Solène LOEUR, Echoes founded by Xavier SEUX and Jérémy NABAIS, Juggle founded by Corentin KERBIRIOU, Les apprêtés founded by Anne Claire CHANVIN and Marie BRANDICOURT, and Simango founded by Guillaume MAQUINAY.
Each finalist had 20 minutes to present their startup: 10 minutes to pitch, then 10 minutes for questions/responses. After deliberation, the jury chose the winners for 2020.
The IÉSEG 2021 Entrepreneur Prize of €8 000, awarded by the Caisse d’Epargne Hauts de France (partner of the IÉSEG Incubator) was given to the startup Simango (represented by Guillaume Maquinay), which proposes a training platform in virtual reality for health professionals.
The jury’s special prize of €3,000 (coup de cœur), awarded by IÉSEG Network, was awarded to the startup Les Apprêtés (represented by Anne Claire Chanvin and Marie Brandicourt) which is an eco-responsible clothing rental service.
Congratulations to all of the finalists, and see you next year for the 2022 edition of the prize!
