This program is based in Paris, a city booming with startups and digital companies. Are there any notable guest speakers that visit?

Yes, there are many. For the induction seminar, we invited CDOs from five big companies including Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise and AXA. And, we invite startup owners too. We had a Googler for two sessions and the students found the experience really insightful and interesting. It’s a real opportunity to have someone from Google come to talk to you for three days in a row, non-stop, and to actually have his contact afterwards. He is an influencer, a blogger and a GEM alumnus as well. Students can ask him questions whenever they want to.
