For the second year, the pitch competition organized by the Entrepreneurship Department and the ESSCA Incubator was held on Thursday April 25 at the ESSCA Incubator in Boulogne.

As a reminder, in 2023, this Pitch competition replaced the "bourse entreprendre", whose model was running out of steam.

It is part of the new dynamic that the school wants to give to entrepreneurship, and relies on the ad hoc structures set up on each campus.

This year's pitch competition was a great success, with 85 students from all ESSCA campuses submitting 47 projects.

An initial internal school phase selected the 12 projects competing in the finals.

All finalists came to pitch to a panel of judges made up of professionals, professors and alumni.
