Ecole Polytechnique 6 months start-up acceleration program open for applications

The Ecole Polytechnique Innovation Center (affectionally known as DrahiX) is recruiting its 8th crop of start-ups for its acceleration program (affectionally known as X-Up) — an excellent opportunity to be accompanied in taking your nascent start-up to the next level, integrated in one of the most dynamic start-up ecosystems in France.

The application deadline is September 15, 2018 — and the acceleration period runs from October 8, 2018 to May 29, 2019.

Some of the X-Up program highlights include:

  • Support from the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Department : Experts, advisors, workshops.
  • Access to École polytechnique’s network: students, engineers, researchers, and executives.
  • A building entirely dedicated to entrepreneurship and prototyping accessible 24/7.

Plus, an environment with other (tech!) start-ups in the acceleration or incubation phase, as well as co-innovation initiatives by major French and international conpanies.

Here’s a flyer with details of the. And, here’s the link for applying.

The offices of my team are in the innovation center, and we’re looking forward to spending the next “snowstorm” with new neighbors.
