Be an entrepreneur in the ISDI ecosystem

Entrepreneurship has changed drastically over the last 10 years due to the cultural and technological development of the Internet, and has become younger, better prepared and more disruptive. However there are still has many challenges ahead. Almost a quarter of our students are entrepreneurs, and as an institution and ecosystem ISDI supports them in their initiatives in the fields of acceleration, communication and networking.

22% of ISDI students launch a startup. Our vocation is to help these startups throughout the different phases of creation, launch and growth.
