The Alumni Association is organising the ‘Soirée des Pépites, la Grande Soirée de l'Entrepreneuriat’ [Business Startup Evening – an evening of entrepreneurship], which is due to take place on Wednesday, 24 May 2023 at 6:30 pm, at BpiFrance, 8 Bd Haussmann, 75009 Paris.  

As part of this, we are launching a call for applications to those people among our community of entrepreneurs who are life members of the EM Normandie Alumni Association so that they can take part in the grand final for one of the following categories:

  • Positive Impact Award
  • Smart Tech Award
  • Innovative Idea Award
  • Young Gem (‘Pépite’) award (company set up less than three years ago)
  • Best Newcomer Award (project already underway).

One final prize will also be awarded to the winner of a public vote.


Would you like to apply? 

All you need to do is complete this form and send a video of your company's presentation pitch (1 minute) to Elise THIFAGNE

Deadline for entries: Friday, 21 April 2023.


Before the event, two finalists will be selected in each category by a jury composed of EM Normandie graduates and employees, as well as entrepreneurial professionals; their names will be revealed on 24 May. The finalists will be asked to make a one-minute pitch,  followed by a one-minute Q&A session with the jury. 


The winners of the Positive Impact, Smart Tech, Innovative Idea, Young Gem and People's Choice Award categories will each receive a cheque for

€4,000 and the Best Newcomer Award: financing for support from the EM Normandie Business School Incubator.


A cocktail reception will follow the awards ceremony

and it is our pleasure to invite all nominees to the evening event.
