Tech & Impact at the heart of Msc X-HEC Entrepreneurs' projects

On Tuesday June 11th, the last Final Jury of the MSc X-HEC Entrepreneurs batch 2018-2019 took place in the premises of the Medef, in Paris

Jury Final X-HEC Entrepreneurs

On Tuesday, June 11, the last Final Jury of the MSc X-HEC Entrepreneurs took place. As in previous years, the event took place at the Medef in Paris, but in a new format!

It was in the Medef Auditorium that some fifteen projects, previously selected among the 48 of the 2018-2019 batch, by a jury of experts the previous week, were honored. 
In 10 minutes each team had to present their project and answer questions from the jury chaired this year by Pierre-Henri BENHAMOU, Founder DBV TECHNOLOGIES; Yves CANAC, President at YCC Audit and Consulting; Laurent DASSAULT, Deputy General Manager of GIMD; Aude DE LIVONNIERE, DG of LIVCER ; Sophie DESMAZIERES, President of BUREAUXLOCAUX; Jean Louis DETRY, President of Vermeer Capital; Julie LEIBOVICI, CEO of Financiere MLA; Didier SELLIER; Nathalie YOUNAN, FTPA Lawyer; and in the presence of the promotional sponsor Julia BIJAOUI, Co-Founder of Frichti.

A two-stage selection that highlighted the 15 most promising projects in front of a packed room of 250 people, made up of mentors, experts, professors students and numerous Alumni! 

While Alain Bloch, co-director of the Master's degree, highlighted the high proportion of Tech projects that were higher than in previous years, among the three finalist projects we also found projects with a strong societal impact:

  • Tarmac Technologies, a solution for improving aircraft ground management and reducing delays, co-founded by Anthoine Dusselier, Maud Payan and Delphine Deleger.
  • Tom&Josette, the first network of intergenerational micro-nurseries inspired by Montessori, co-founded by Pauline Faivre, Astrid Parmentier and Isabelle Pélissié-du-Rausas
  • Petit Côté, the leading French brand of vegetable-based cakes! Co-founded by Juliette Morel and Capucine Epagneau.

The jury's favourite was awarded to Spargo, a new generation growth factor for pancytopenia, co-founded by Lenny Dahan and Maria Tahri.
