Dauphine Incubator

The Incubator develops and supports the entrepreneurial spirit at Dauphine - PSL

A threefold objective: 

  • Raising awareness about entrepreneurship 
  • Support entrepreneurs 
  • Bringing together an ecosystem 

Created in 2012, it offers 3 business-oriented incubation programs

Alumni Program #Paris

This incubation program is dedicated to early-stage startups with teams in which at least one of the founders is a graduate of Université Paris Dauphine - PSL or PSL, 100% operational, 200% ambitious, 300% committed! 

It is held over 12 months and provides access to physical office space,  financing based on eligibility, genuine support, access to a network of experts and preferential rates with our partners. 

The objective of the program is to enable entrepreneurs to validate their proof of concept and accelerate their development, structure their offer, their team, generate their first revenues, set up their processes and KPIs, raise their seed money (public / private), and get the word out about them. 

We recruit our classes twice a year through calls for applications: at the beginning of the year for integration in the spring, in September for autumn integration. Don’t miss the next one! 

If you are mentors, experts, investors, part of the startup ecosystem or simply curious, do not hesitate to contact us

Student Program #Paris

This program is aimed at any student of Dauphine - PSL (from L1 to M2) or PSL, who has an entrepreneurial spirit, is highly motivated to develop their project and is ready to make a commitment during their university years, in parallel with their studies. 

It takes place from the time you enter the incubator until the end of your studies at Dauphine - PSL, and provides access to an office, personalized support, a network of experts, events organized within the ecosystem, preferential rates with our partners, and the status of student-entrepreneur. 

To join the program and earn your place with the entrepreneurs in the incubator, you have to prove yourself and show your motivation. We organize about ten workshops with entrepreneurs and experts throughout the year, open to all, which we recommend attending. In November, we organize a startup challenge which allows you to pre-qualify for the coaching program. In March, pre-qualified entrepreneurs go before a final jury
