The HEC Stand Up program is primarily aimed at women in the Paris Ile-de-France region, who are involved in business projects, who are either in a jobseeker’s position, unemployed or a company already registered (SIRET) for less than 5 years. However, this program is open to any woman who has a start-up creation project that does not specifically meet the above mentioned conditions but for which no scholarship will be paid.
It helps entrepreneurs to start their own business, work on their development projects and gain confidence.
It is organized around three highlights, innervated by pitch-diagnostic sessions, collaborative thematic workshops, MOOCs, mentoring sessions and networking:
The objective is to give participants the tools to increase their potential, express their creativity and ultimately create and develop their own business.
Among its various actions in favor of social openness, HEC Paris has been involved in entrepreneurship with societal impact since November 2012, the date of the Stand Up HEC program launch. The Entrepreneurship Center and the Society and Organizations Center offer business project creators all the pedagogical and academic resources of HEC Paris, the first European Business School, and offers them the chance to follow a real training program to realize their project and, for the most ambitious, to access the HEC incubator!
