They talk about us 

"Choosing to be an entrepreneur also means choosing to work alone (or with 2 or 3 people) in the early stages. That's why we were keen to surround ourselves with the right people. We're lucky to have a very well-structured incubator at Grenoble Ecole de Management. Why not take advantage of it? It was 
an obvious choice for Raphaël and me to apply to IncubaGEM's incubation program. IncubaGEM helped us with the legal aspects of creating our articles of association once the MVP concept had been validated.
Benoit and Raphaël, Lokki

"Setting up a company straight out of school, without much professional experience, is no easy task. The experts at incubaGEM gave us access to invaluable information on choosing the right status, writing a business plan, devising a communication strategy and drafting press releases. It's important to surround yourself with people when you're setting up your own business! Also, the community is very active and we regularly exchange views on each other's problems. I recommend it!"
Maxime Boniface, Founder of Champiloop

"Doing business on my own can sometimes feel like a form of isolation and loneliness. Thanks to Incubagem, I not only feel accompanied, but also surrounded by other entrepreneurs who are going through a similar adventure."
Johanna, Wia

"The GEM incubator was instrumental in the founding of my firm, providing me with an invaluable network and sound advice from Julien Coupat, which was crucial at the start of my business. It was also indirectly through this network that I met Ève-Marie Dyon, who has since become my partner. I'm deeply grateful for the support and opportunities it gave me during my two years of incubation."
