The X-HEC Entrepreneurs master class is in Silicon Valley

The 2019 X-HEC Entrepreneurs master is in Silicon Valley! The LEX - or "Learning Expedition" is a study trip that takes place just after the final jury of the development mission and lasts one week. The goal is to discover and immerse yourself in the Silicon Valley ecosystem. In this region, the world's largest innovation ecosystem, there are many opportunities.

"Think big or go home" is the Valley's leitmotif. This trip is the perfect opportunity for students to step back and come back determined and full of ideas!

The process is generally as follows: visit of a large structure in the morning (Google, Facebook, Slack, Linkedin...) and visit of startups, incubators or investors in small groups in the afternoon: Edmodo, Feedly, Coursera, Bloom energy, IndieBio, PayPal, Palentir, Silicon Foundry, Lyft, Github, Shopify, Spire, Airbnb, Gorgias, Turo, Uber, DX Lab...


HEC X Google


For 3 years now, about ten VIPs (French company owners and/or entrepreneurs) have been following the X-HEC Entrepreneurs cohort for the entire duration of the trip. The first promotion of the Master in Entrepreneurship program of ESA Beirut has also joined for the first year!
