The work with our coach was really a meeting full of kindness that allowed us to structure our approach and to ask ourselves the right questions to start a serene growth. The strongest point was precisely this mental support and open-mindedness.”

Starter is a paid early-stage startup incubation program. This program does not take equity. The price of the program is:

  • 2000 euros TTC/Start-up, that is 333 euros/month.
  • 2200 euros TTC through the CPF, Pôle Emploi or the French Tech Visa.

Yes. The price and support of the Starter program is applied per startup or project and not per number of founders.

Our acceleration programs are designed to be available and accessible anywhere in the world.
Whether it’s for training workshops or exchanges with experts, everything can be done remotely.

We also organize a monthly “drink” with incubated entrepreneurs and alumni in our Schoolab Saint-Lazare office, 15 rue de Milan 75009 in Paris.
Entrepreneurs can also come to our Schoolbar, a coworking space/Café.

Starter is an incubation program designed for all types of entrepreneurs who are starting their own early-stage startup:

  • entrepreneurs in transition
  • students
  • international entrepreneurs
  • etc.

It is essential for Schoolab that entrepreneurs come from all backgrounds and all educational backgrounds (business, engineering, design, medicine, pharmacy, psychology, law, journalism, art, etc.) and that they set up all types of startups (tech, social business, art, etc.).
It is fundamental that the startups in our incubator are passionate and have a good understanding of their target market’s needs.

The Starter program lasts for 6 months. There are 2 sessions per year.
The first session starts in May.
The second session starts in November.

  1. Fill out the application form.

No. However, our café “Schoolbar” always welcomes entrepreneurs who wish to work there during the day.

Additionally, Schoolab offers office space for rent to entrepreneurs who wish to do so. With this in mind, access to office space is to be added to the cost of the Starter Accelerator program coaching. 💡
If you are interested in an office at Schoolab, please mention it during your application process.
