Each year, Petit Poucet, a start-up incubator, organises a national business creation competition for students and young graduates in order to draw up its new class and promote the entrepreneurial spirit throughout the territory. It is a much-respected competition for our young French students with 305 applications submitted this year, a record! Among the applicants, 34 came directly from the NEOMA Business School community, making for more than 11% of the entrants.
“The increase in applications clearly shows the current trend at our school where students and young professionals are setting their sights more and more on business creation,” said Denis Gallot, Director of incubators at NEOMA Business School.
This year, the team from the start-up Nomen’k, powered by NEOMA BS Incubators, also distinguished itself during the Petit Poucet competition by taking 2nd prize in the Foodtech and Gastronomy category. It was worthy acknowledgement for this young business specialising in the production of super energy snacks made from spirulina and French hemp seed.
