The Université de Lyon is launching the International Soft Landing for Young Entrepreneurs (ISLYE) Mobility Programme 2021-2022 for student-entrepreneurs towards the incubators of the academic institutions of the Arqus European University Alliance.
For this, the incubators of the 7 Arqus universities organize an information and presentation webinar on 27th September 2021 from 10:30h to 12:30h (CEST).
Registration for Arqus incubators' entrepreneurs is open till 26/09/2021 via this link.
The ISLYE Mobility Programme has been designed to offer international mobility opportunities between Arqus cities to student entrepreneurs, by establishing partnerships between the universities’ incubators. This program is open to student-entrepreneurs of all Arqus institutions and partner incubators, whose projects have a strategic interest in acquiring an international orientation. Ideally, the participating projects must be starting the commercialization phase. Projects in the prototyping phase of a product or service, requiring a longer and more complex development and market access phase, may also apply.
The objectives of the programme are:
- Experience an intercultural approach to business.
- Support for their entrepreneurial project through international mentoring and coaching.
- Meet start-ups and companies in a “peer to peer” logic.
- Develop their business network with help from the partners in the ISLYE network.
The ISLYE Mobility Programme is divided into two main phases: the digital support and training phase (coaching and mentoring sessions) will precede the physical mobilities that will take place from 2022.
This activity is organised within Action Line 5, Entrepreneurial University and Regional Engagement, led by the Université de Lyon.
