Par 22 avril 2020Actu

Created in 2015 to help stimulate entrepreneurship and technological innovation, the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Department of the Ecole Polytechnique has set up separate programmes, including X-Up Incubation for early stage start-ups and X-Tech Booster for more advanced companies.
These activities take place in a unique 5,000 sqm facility dedicated to entrepreneurs, project facilitators, students, researchers, corporations and partners (whether academic, institutional and industrial): the Drahi-X-Novation Center entrepreneurial fibre.

Five years later

After having supported 82 startup, we now want to share their progress. Whatever the reasons, the facilitators decided to build a project while taking into account the inevitable obstacles to be overcome. After weeks, months and years passing through the Innovation Center, where do they stand today?

Stay tuned !

We have selected 9 startups: 9 projects, 9 stories, 9 journeys, 9 testimonials. What do they have in common ? They are all, in one way or another, connected to our ecosystem: alumni from the Ecole Polytechnique, X-Up incubated projects, startups from the X-Tech Booster, or users of the X-Fab prototyping space. What does entrepreneurship mean to each of them? Why did they make this choice and how did they build their own project ? X-Stories highlights their work, their motivations, their perseverance, the jobs created, the innovations developed and their desire to contribute to social and economic progress.
