To honour Jean-Baptiste Say, one of the founders of ESCP and the person who coined the term entrepreneur, we are delighted to celebrate the 14th edition of the Jean-Baptiste Say Entrepreneurship Festival welcomed by the ESCP Blue Factory, Jean Baptiste Say Institute and ESCP Alumni Association.
The Blue Factory is our European incubator that supports founders - students and graduates - from ideation to the international development of their company. The 2023 Entrepreneurship Festival will represent the ongoing effort of the London community for this great project.
The theme for this year's Festival is "Entrepreneurship for a Better Life and Society"
Hosted by Dr. Stela Ivanova, the vision of this event is to unite students, alumni, entrepreneurs, investors and potential customers to exchange ideas and learn from each other.
This summer edition is run as part of the ESCP MSc in Marketing & Creativity (currently placed 4th worldwide in the 2023 QS World University Ranking).
