Ever wanted to start your own business and become a successful entrepreneur? Le Bridge is the opportunity to do it!

Many talk about entrepreneurship in France, quoting the best principles, trying to explain the best methods, without sometimes mentioning what it is really about. How about living it for real? Not only in books, in videos, in master classes or in any other conferences. But being in there yourself. Live 4 full months in Berkeley, from August to December and learn everything you need to know to find your idea, test your concept, find your perfect co-founders and VCs. Stay in San Fransisco or come to Paris and spend 9 other months, from January to the end of September, in the hottest place to create, the Schoolab incubator, to innovate and accelerate your startup.

Le Bridge Entrepreneurship

Le Bridge Program gives students a deep understanding of innovation and the entrepreneurial process. Students learn critical skills from world-renowned faculty and entrepreneurs, gain hands-on experience in new venture creation, and build a network of mentors and advisors for both personal and professional development. Based on the Berkeley Method of Entrepreneurship, the program focuses on building the mindset and behaviors of successful entrepreneurs.

We recruit graduate students from top-tier universities and from a range of disciplines. We accept highly-motivated, self-starters with a demonstrated interest in technology entrepreneurship. Le Bridge Fellows Program has two required components: Four months in California, mainly at the University of California Berkeley’s Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship & Technology (SCET) and nine months at Schoolab Innovation Studio where entrepreneurs are given the chance to accelerate their business.

For 13 years, Schoolab has been training more than 1000 students from 30 different nationalities and conceiving more than 150 innovative products and services on behalf of 65 companies.

UC Berkeley is one of the world’s leading universities with elite engineering programs and a strong focus on innovation and business. It is the 3rd American university, which trained the highest number of successful entrepreneurs.

Together we created common innovation and entrepreneurship programs that link Paris and the Silicon Valley. We believe that both ecosystems have a lot to learn from one another.

Paris brings its French touch: its intellectual background, the quality of its higher education system, its acute reasoning, its unique subtitly reflected in the French arts and language.

The Silicon Valley brings its American touch: its unique entrepreneurial spirit, its expertise in technologies, its variety of nationalities, its capacity to take risks and innovate from scratch.
