Entrepreneurship: the School's strategic focus

At NEOMA Business School, innovation is more than just a word. It's a genuine state of mind that we share with our students, our graduates and our entire community.

Our Business Incubators reflect the intent to be part of a movement, to sail a sea of possibilities, and give life to your aims and ambitions. It is a real venture in which we are happy to accompany budding entrepreneurs on their road to success.

The aim: to develop a genuine entrepreneurial ecosystem

Within the StartUp Lab, which centralizes all of the activities related to entrepreneurship and innovation, NEOMA BS provides its students and its community with a genuine entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Currently consisting of three Business Incubators and two accelerators, the Startup Lab provides the School's students and graduates with a 360° creative experience, from generating ideas through support, to the creation of the company and then to its proper development.

With its network up of mentors who have graduated from the School and around a hundred partner business experts, this unique structure allows young start-uppers to calmly set sail on their entrepreneurial venture and optimize their chances of success.

Testimonial of Axel GUIDICELLI (PGE 2017), Co-founder of Ulysse.

“NEOMA Incubators supported us from the start of our project through to the first round of seed capital (1.3 million in 2019). Network support and sharing allowed us to move forward quickly in our project even though our sector of activity is extremely competitive. Today Ulysse is operating at full speed and we do not intend to stop there. Our ambition is to offer the simplest solution in the world for booking airline tickets. "
