Start a business

Sciences Po Entrepreneurs supports students and recent graduates who are interested in entrepreneurship and are keen to launch a startup business during, or directly following, their studies.

Sciences Po Entrepreneurs offers a special programme (fr) dedicated to entrepreneurship, and available to students from the undergraduate level upwards. Through courses, seminars and workshops, the programme helps students to understand the issues, and to harness the necessary tools to turn an idea into a business.

During these phases of development and implementation, student entrepreneurs gain privileged access to a broad network of business professionals who also teach at Sciences Po.

Every year, Sciences Po Entrepreneurs assists nearly 300 students and welcomes a dozen new startups (fr) to its incubator. Some have gone on to become successful companies and several have won prizes for innovation.
