KEDGE has provided three of its campuses with spaces entirely dedicated to entrepreneurial projects. Coworking spaces for teamwork, bubbles for meetings and quiet times, relaxing areas for a well-deserved break. The three incubators are perfect for the conception of projects.
The entrepreneurial space in Bordeaux (The Business Nursery)
Located on the 5th floor of the Talence campus, the incubator benefits from an exceptional view and great luminosity. Inaugurated in 2019 by Alain Rousset and several elected officials as well as graduate entrepreneurs, this space benefits from numerous business partnerships with, among others, French Tech Bordeaux and Cdiscount.
The KEDGE Entrepreneurial space is opened to students, school graduates, associations, partners, businesses and any other project owner. All can benefit from human resources (teachers, researchers, collaborators, professors, coaches, mentors) as well as material resources (Business Nursery Incubator, the Supply Chain Centre of Excellence, creative and conference rooms, meeting rooms…).
