Efrei and Audencia Nantes Management School, were the original founders of the IES!, a network of business and engineering schools who have joined forces to develop and invest in the business incubation ecosystem in France. The objective of IES! is to bring “structure” to the role of Incubator Manager, by outlining a frame of reference and benchmarks for good start-up practices and competencies.
