Bpifrance has chosen IÉSEG School of Management to be its partner for the fifth class of its “Accélerateur PME” program (an accelerator program for SMEs).
Bpifrance is a bank for entrepreneurs specialized in financing and accompanying company growth, particularly on an international level and in innovation. It recently selected around 60 small and medium-sized businesses in France and proposed to accompany their managers in in their company growth.
These companies, which are from different sectors, and are mainly industrial, have a strong growth potential to become larger companies (“Entreprise de Taille Intermédiaire”).
Transforming small and medium-sized businesses into larger companies, developing a sort of French Mittelstand, and contributing to value and job creation are the three strategic objectives of this ambitious and complete project, which will take place over 24 months.
With a training cycle of eight 2-day seminars, organized at the Bpifrance headquarters and led by IÉSEG coaches and experts, these managers will have the opportunity to perfect their strategical, international, innovative, leadership, marketing/branding, governance, sales, supply chain, business development, human resources and CSR skills.
With interactive conferences, action-oriented workshops, numerous tools, and case studies of small and medium-sized businesses, participants will be able to identify key performance indicators for their companies and easily determine different ways that their companies can grow.
Bpifrance chose IÉSEG as a partner because of several key elements: IÉSEG’s capacity to create innovative programs and to mobilize its entire ecosystem (including students, who will provide a Generation Z perspective on the subject covered), and for the quality of its project management, along with the quality of its experts.
Throughout this program, participants will have access to the entire IÉSEG ecosystem: a close accompaniment that will allow these managers to grasp all of the major issues and challenges of the medium-sized companies of tomorrow.
