Building Blocks

    Go on a trip to one of the best start-up ecosystems in the world, such as Budapest, New York, San Francisco, Shanghai, Tel Aviv or Warsaw. There is an extra fee for the ecosystem trip.

    Learn the scientific ways to move from an idea to a prototype with a clear goal: to present it and organize the Entrepreneurship Festival on your campus, one of the most important ESCP events of the year!
    Apply what you learned by elaborating a plan for your entrepreneurial idea, working with the lean start-up methodology and business model canvas. Manage entrepreneurial finance and early sources of funding. With Theatrical Tools for Pitching you will be able to define your final pitch for the Made at ESCP SEED Jury, the most important ESCP event of the year!
    ESCP students have to select one extra elective: Growth Hacking & We start social.

    The Option Entrepreneurship gave me the confidence to follow my inner passion: business in Africa. The experience gave me the skills to lead the marketing department of a highly growing fintech startup: Afrimarket. 2 years after the Option Entrepreneurship I have just pitched Afrimarket in the World Bank at New York, I would never have imagined that before the Option-E!
