Entrepreneurship Festival (London Edition)
Time & Location
About The Event
To honour Jean-Baptiste Say, one of the founders of ESCP Europe and the person who coined the term entrepreneur, we are delighted to celebrate the 7th edition of the Jean-Baptiste Say Entrepreneurship Festival in collaboration with the Blue Factory ESCP Europe.
The Blue Factory is our European incubator that supports founders - students and graduates - from ideation to the international development of their company. The 2019 Entrepreneurship Festival will represent the launching of the London community of this great project. Learn more: www.blue-factory.eu
The vision of the event is to unite students, alumni, entrepreneurs, investors and potential customers to exchange ideas and learn from each other.
This event is run as part of ESCP Europe's top-ranked Master in Management programme, currently placed 6th worldwide by the Financial Times. Five of our six European campuses are running local Entrepreneurship Festivals on the same day, just another example of ESCP Europe's pan-European spirit.
