The Entrepreneurs program takes the form of a 6 month incubation. This program is aimed at young entrepreneurs and start ups in creative industries. It provides them with all-encompassing support on the entire spectrum of their project’s dimensions.

Program structure and rhythm

The program, open to a class of 12 individuals at most, is organised around two yearly batches :

  • September-February
  • March-August

Organisation of the curriculum

The program consists of two hours of individual mentoring and two workshops per month (i.e. 4 to 6 days per month).

Mentoring

Throughout the program, you will be placed under the responsibility of a mentor. This mentor will have been selected according to his or her skills and ability to support your project’s development. (S)he may be a professor or a professional.

The mentor will accompany you throughtout the program by guiding you in the establishment of your project and its development. (S)he will also help you to request points of view from various experts in the sector who will contribute specific skills adapted to each of your issues.

Collaborative workshops

The Fast Track program gives access to 8 workshops organized by the IFM and led by professionals who are well renowned in their field of activity.

The themes of these workshops, open only to this program’s participants, are the following :

  1. Branding
  2. Offer management
  3. Product knowledge
  4. Client knowledge
  5. Market investigation
  6. Digital Marketing
  7. Legal aspects
  8. Business plan

You will also be able to take part in the collective workshops organized by the programs present at Station F (Vente-Privée, LVMH, L'Oréal...) and in particular those from the ADN_ x IFM program on key issues (fundraising, communication...).

A workspace at Station F

Each of the participants on the Entrepreneurs Fast Track program has 6 months’ use of one or more workspaces at Station F, the world’s biggest Start-Up, which gives the potential to take advantage of the ecosystem present within the Campus (investment funds, TechShop, public services) and to benefit from offers negotiated collectively by Station F for start-up incubators.

The network

The Institut Français de la Mode, which offers design and fashion management programs, is deeply anchored within the entire fashion ecosystem. Its closeness to all fashion players, be they companies or professional networks, enables it to put you in touch with the best experts in the sector. Its economic observatory, moreover, brings together experts who decode all the trends on a daily basis and give you access to economic studies or market analysis which can be potentially useful to your activity.
