JB Say Entrepreneurship Festival 2020 (London Winter Edition)
Time & Location
About The Event
To honour Jean-Baptiste Say, one of the founders of ESCP and the person who coined the term entrepreneur, we are delighted to celebrate the 8th edition of the Jean-Baptiste Say Entrepreneurship Festival in collaboration with the ESCP Blue Factory.
The Blue Factory is our European incubator that supports founders - students and graduates - from ideation to the international development of their company. The 2020 Entrepreneurship Festival will represent the ongoing effort of the London community for this great project.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, all ESCP classes and events are currently taking place online. As such, the theme for this year's Festival is ‘Developing New Opportunities in the New Normal’.
Hosted by Prof. Davide Sola the vision of this event is to unite students, alumni, entrepreneurs, investors and potential customers to exchange ideas and learn from each other.
