The Institut Mines-Telecom (IMT) incubator network has been appointed operator of the 3rd edition of the French Tech Springboard to support talents from underrepresented populations in the Tech ecosystem. The incubators affiliated with IMT schools are to host and guide the program’s winning start-ups for a year. Via the call for projects, Institut Mines-Telecom demonstrated its expertise in guiding innovative deeptech and impact projects led by entrepreneurs from all backgrounds.
This program embodies the 2023/2027 strategy to play an active role in regional policies for economic growth and support businesses in their digital and ecological transformation, by providing each region of France with the local commitment of schools and access to all the expertise of the Institut Mines-Telecom group.
“Through their rich diversity, the egalitarian coming-together of all talents and incubators must enable technological impact projects to prosper. The nationwide network of Institut Mines-Telecom incubators represents a genuine asset in the form of local support and expertise. We look forward to welcoming future Tech talents, to helping their projects succeed, and thus play our part in the emergence of upcoming nuggets. In order to meet the challenges of ecological, digital and industrial transitions, we must rally all entrepreneurial players and draw on their diversity to foster the development of innovative ideas and social progress for an inclusive future.”
