WHO WE ARE
Supported by an internationally renowned university, immersed in an environment of excellence and creativity, Paris-Dauphine Incubator is at the cutting edge of entrepreneurship and innovation.
Created in 2012, supported by Paris-Dauphine Foundation and a network of 90,000 alumni, Paris-Dauphine Incubator is offering in France two programmes designed specifically to support the entrepreneurship projects of our students and our alumni.
Since ignition, 94 startups have benefited from a year of co-working spaces, funding, expertise and tailor-made coaching, with many success stories.
In 2014, Paris-Dauphine University has developed a campus in London, echoing the large community of alumni settled in the UK and the big interest in our student to get an international experience. The attractiveness of this project remained very strong over the years. A UK-dedicated incubator programme: Paris-Dauphine London Incubator has opened in April 2019 in order to support this dynamic.
