This Monday, Technoport received a delegation of students from IESEG (Institut d’économie scientifique et de gestion) School of Management in Paris on a brief visit to Luxembourg. Established in 1964, IESEG is today considered as one of the best management schools in France.

“Every year, we give our students the opportunity to discover good practice in the fields of business and performing ecosystems,” explains Jacob Vakkayil, Academic Director – International MBA at IESEG. “This is the second time we come to Luxembourg. Last year we brought around 15 students. This year, they are twice as many.”

Around 30 students – some of whom already have several years of professional experience – from all over the world (mainly outside the European Union) could thus discover the inspiring environment of Technoport as well as Luxinnovation’s services, which were presented by Stefan Berend, Head of Start-up Support.

“We also have an incubator at our school and it is interesting to share our experiences with Technoport,” says Jacob Vakkayil.

During their visit to Luxembourg, the students also visited the Chamber of Commerce and the consulting and auditing company EY.

In the evening, the delegation continued to Amsterdam for a two-day visit before returning to Paris via Antwerpen and Brussels where more presentations and visits await them.
