On November 15, 2017, Lucie de Saint Etienne (graduated from NEOMA BS MSc in Marketing French Excellence) and Clément Cosme, the two co-founders of the start-up Nomen’K powered by the NEOMA BS Incubator, were pleased to receive the 2017 PEPITE-Tremplin Award for Student Entrepreneurship from Frédérique Vidal, Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation.
Created in 2014 by the ministry in charge of higher education and research and organised in partnership with the Caisse Des Dépôts, this award aims to encourage and support company-creation projects among students and young graduates. Out of the 600 applications, Lucie and Clément were able to charm the jury with their Normandy organic super-snacks made from hemp and spirulina.
“The €5,000 that we’ve just won is going to be put towards equipment purchases for making the super-snack products that we offer,” Lucie explained.
It’s a great step up for this start-up that has had its products on sale since mid-September 2017.
