A Closer Look at Le Tremplin’s Incubation Programme

Le Tremplin developed an incubation programme that could go up to three years and is focused on the following five axes:

1.  Individual coaching – through regular appointments with experts to challenge or help the startups develop their product or service, strategy, business plan, pitching skills. A series of inter-startup workshops – to share best practices, advice and contacts – are also provided, with the aim of also identifying potential collaborations and synergies. Incubated startups benefit from bespoke mentoring and follow-ups, especially geared towards growing the business and raising funds.

2. Collective coaching – through inspiring conferences, workshops and courses given by industry experts such as Decathlon’s Head of HR or Olympique de Marseille’s director, help startups find fast solutions to the problems most of the startups face.

3. Access to an extensive network – Le Tremplin has a prestigious network of nearly 30 corporate and institutional partners, including among others, the French Olympic Committee, the City of Paris, the French Ministry of Sports, Nike, PwC, Société Générale, The French Lottery (FDJ), Amaury Sports Organisation and L’Equipe. Each one of them contributes to the development of the startups and help them accelerate their business.

4. Increased visibility – Le Tremplin has a large media network that enables the incubated startups to get a strong exposure in France and abroad. The selection process is made by Le Tremplin and its partners which gives the incubated startups a high level of credibility.

5. International opportunities – As part of Paris&Co’s network, Le Tremplin has access to the entire Paris&Co’s international partner network, and so do the incubated startups.
