First Student Startup Accelerator
Why join the HEC Launchpad?
Designed with a ‘learning by doing’ (applied pedagogy) approach by HEC, in partnership with School 42, the launchpad program aims to help student entrepreneurs launch their startup within 10 weeks. This program isn’t a simple course in entrepreneurship, but an accelerator for the launch of start-ups.
More than a method, the launchpad is a community; an approach built on the experience of entrepreneurs and customer development methodologies.
"Each entrepreneur will go through the same steps, we provide the ecosystem. By sharing methodology and experience we can optimise your chances of success and save you valuable time.
Whatever the results of your project, the human experience will be invaluable. It is this experience that will propel early-bird entrepreneurs in their careers." says Guillaume le Dieu de Ville, program Director.
This program is offered to students from HEC Digital, X-HEC Entrepreneurs, HEC Data Science for Business, HEC SASI and Ecole 42, E-Arstup
Business, Engineer, Coders, Designers. This program benefits from a great diversity of profiles, welcoming students on various double degrees as well as those from HEC's many partnerships. The program is also offered to all members of a team, even those including external members: diversity is one of the pillars of the launchpad.
As its name suggests, the launchpad focuses on preparing for the launch of your company.
