Graduated in 2017
Programme Manager, French Navy
The two study trips and the two very different business models in the form of China and Silicon Valley really changed my views. All my pre-conceptions about the former were proven wrong. Thanks to this experience, I have much stronger social and economic reference points for understanding market opportunities.
The visit to the heart of Silicon Valley enabled me to look beyond appearances and discover the hidden side of this fascinating hub of innovation. Silicon Valley really is a source of inspiration for any French entrepreneur, but it shouldn’t be held up as the only model to follow either.
This programme has opened up business gateways, both public and private, that will help me take my first steps into these emblematic markets and assess the feasibility of my own of my own projects.
