Interested in the world of entrepreneurship? Genius is the best way to get to know it. Set up in 2014, Genius Ponts is the École des Ponts ParisTech branch of a national federation of organisations dedicated to student entrepreneurship, now present at Paris-Dauphine University, Centrale-Supélec, MINES ParisTech, IPSA… In order to promote student entrepreneurship, foster the entrepreneurial spirit, and encourage innovation in the elite schools and universities, Genius organises a variety of events – start-up weekend, start-up pitch, aperitif entrepreneurs, workshops etc. – which give members and nonmembers an opportunity to develop their skills and knowledge, and to establish an inter-school network of students with complementary profiles.
- Check out the Genius Ponts and Genius Global Facebook pages for information about the events. Some of them are open to everyone, others restricted to members.
- There is an annual subscription of €10 to cover the cost of organising the different events, paying travel costs for contributors and instructors, and running the national network.
