Startup Programs

X-Up is an early-stage accelerator for technological and innovative startups.

It provides 6-months, renewable once, acceleration cycle to up to 15 startups of various sectors: IOT, hardware, data science, artificial intelligence, robotics, healthcare, fintech, cleantech, etc.

The process is heavily based on mentoring, that is adjusted on a case by case basis, and is developed around high-level workshops inciting the circulation of ideas.

Accelerated startups work in close interaction with the École Polytechnique ecosystem (N°1 Best French “Grandes Écoles” in Science and Technology, N°4 World Best Universities for Global Executives): students, researchers, laboratory staff, teachers, institutions promoting technology and research, corporate companies, etc.

This program is hosted on-campus, in "LA FIBRE ENTREPRENEUR", a new 2,600 m² space providing a unique spot for creation, experimentation and prototyping, education, incubation, and exchanges with investors.

To prepare their future developments, they benefit from an international network of accelerators and incubators, partners and alumni (including entrepreneurs, investors, Major Group’s CEOs, etc).
