STATION F and INSEAD will unveil a new partnership that includes an INSEAD Global Entrepreneurs speaker series and the creation of an INSEAD LaunchPad. The aim is to nurture the next wave of INSEAD entrepreneurial talents while also contributing to the development of Paris as a leading global centre for entrepreneurship.  This initiative is actively supported by the Rudolf and Valeria Maag INSEAD Centre for Entrepreneurship (ICE).

Located in central Paris and backed by entrepreneur-investor Xavier Niel, the 34,000 square metre building hosts an entire startup ecosystem under one roof. A startup zone with 3,000 startup desks is divided into more than 20 different programmes - including Facebook’s Startup Garage, Ashoka’s Tech for Good Accelerator, Vente Privee’s fashion/tech/retail incubator, Microsoft’s AI programme, and now, the INSEAD LaunchPad.

Offering a select group of alumni start-ups access to the impressive STATION F ecosystem, the LaunchPad will also facilitate the sourcing of advisors, customers, partners, investors and talent from the highly innovative INSEAD community. As many of you may know, INSEAD alumni have raised over $7.8B in venture capital in the last decade and created numerous Unicorns.
