The emerging post-VIDOC era raises many societal issues. At the heart of the crisis, a great many initiatives have highlighted the creative and adaptable spirit of our young students and entrepreneurs, as well as our companies, which have been able to rethink their working tools in record time.
Necessary changes in the economic, social and environmental fields will encourage entrepreneurship. All these signals show that we are moving towards an “entrepreneurial society”.
IAE Paris-Sorbonne must be in tune with these new challenges to enable its students and alumni to become the social-economic actors of tomorrow.
Already very committed to supporting the creation of companies through continuing education, it is to an experienced, mature audience, curious to acquire new skills and in search of retraining that our teacher-researchers direct their courses with the study of real business issues.

The IAE Paris-Sorbonne team is in line with the entrepreneurial spirit by practicing transversality with the business world.

thanks to the numerous partnerships but also by forging strong links with :

  • UQAM / HEC Montréal and their incubators
  • The cooperothon,
  • The ESS’pace incubator (ESS)
  • The ENSAM incubator (strong technological orientation

All the ingredients are in the crucible of a future "Sorbonne Factory" with the main objective: "To train entrepreneurs and not employees! » » avec comme objectif principal : « Former des entrepreneurs et non des salariés ! »



More than just university teaching, the “Sorbonne Factory” supports the student or alumni in their project up to the creation of their company by validating each step through testing phases. The projects will have to be in line with the logic of high-potential entrepreneurship or social entrepreneurship, in coherence with our partners such as (Yunus SB center), our values and programs (Master associations) or in the entrepreneurship of the territories/public, in coherence with our values and the ETI chair.

One of the 1st initiatives:

The Endowment Fund participated with the assistance of the ETI Chair in the creation of the YUNUS CENTRE in Paris: a permanent resource and information centre on social business in France.
