Workshops, company visits and a meet&greet with François Hollande: the third EMDIEL Module in Paris

Two intense weeks in Paris! For the kick-off session of the third module of the Executive Master in Digital Innovation and Entrepreneurial Leadership (EMDIEL), we visited Station F, the world’s biggest startup campus covering a whole entrepreneurial ecosystem under one roof. And there was a special guest that we met coincidently while visiting the huge building: François Hollande! Every Monday, Station F will be his new part-time office. As head of the non-profit foundation “La France s’engage” (“France Commits”), the former French President now advices entrepreneurs. Read more about it here.

In the course of the two weeks, our EMDIEL class enjoyed company visits and lectures/workshops on soft skills, finance, business modelling, prototyping and pitching to get prepared for the project pitch at WeWork: not only a good opportunity to practice, but also to get valuable feedback from the jury, consisting of professors and experiences entrepreneurs from Paris.

A diverse module with unexpected highlights. We are looking forward to the next module in San Francisco!
