A program for Students.

We believe that being a student is probably the best time to launch your first start-up. Serguei, Larry, Bill Gates and Zuck, they all did it before you. Now is your time! Fail fast, succeed faster. If you are not from a top-tier university, Le Bridge is also for you: we want the most motivated and talented people who are ready to rock their startups (and not only to rock math equations and essays)!

A year to change your life.

Start with 4 months in UC Berkeley, from August to December 2019, in the track of Entrepreneurship and Innovation, followed by a 9 months tailored program at Schoolab incubator in Paris and/or San Fransisco to launch your start-up, improve your venture and scale it!
