What is LaunchPad?

The INSEAD LaunchPad is our first alumni start-up accelerator, and it is located inside the world’s largest start-up campus – STATION F in Paris. More than just a workspace, alumni-led start-ups from all sectors and industries can take their ventures to the next stage through LaunchPad events and connections, and the many resources in the STATION F ecosystem. The LaunchPad actively promotes the vision of a connected global INSEAD start-up community and raises the profile of Paris as a leading centre for entrepreneurship.
