On Monday 18th November 2013, EM Strasbourg Business School inaugurated its new entrepreneurship and pre-incubator center that goes by the name of «La Ruche » (The Hive). The center brings together different entrepreneurship training programmes offered at EM Strasbourg Business School with a view to assisting aspiring entrepreneurs among the Schools students and alumni. The new facility, which provides space for exchanges and experience-sharing with faculty members and professional practitioners, is designed to foster a community of entrepreneurs within Strasbourgs business school.
According to an IFOP survey, 52% of 18-24-year olds say that they would like to create their own businesses. In order to meet such a growing and largely untapped demand for business creation among young people, EM Strasbourg Business School launched a new entrepreneurship center with a pre-incubator called « La Ruche », which was inaugurated on 18th November 2013. The center is housed in the newly refurbished premises rented by the School on the Strasbourg University campus, a stones throw away from Em Strasbourg Business Schools iconic building.
Designed as an environment offering meeting and co-working opportunities, La Ruche will assist and train students and graduates who wish to develop business projects. Student or graduate project initiators will receive orientation and be referred to personal coaches who will follow them up throughout their projects. Partner experts from the School - including alumni coaches, faculty staff, professional practitioners as well as center sponsor Dominique Formhals, General Manager of Aquatique Show International, Strasbourg, - will be available at the center to help the fledgling entrepreneurs at some key milestones in the business creation process.
