Studying and entrepreneurship: the other way of looking at your future

To study and carry out an entrepreneurial project, there's the Student-Entrepreneur Status! Are you a high school graduate, student or recent graduate who wants to set up or take over a business while studying? The student-entrepreneur status gives you access to a whole range of facilities.

Who can benefit from this status?

Students and graduates from the baccalaureate level upwards, with no age limit.

Why ask for this status, a real project gas pedal?

This status enables student entrepreneurs to work on their business creation project.
With the agreement of the educational supervisor, this status replaces the compulsory internship of the initial training program.
In this way, the Student-Entrepreneur has time to devote fully to his or her project, and joins the regional PEPITE-LR network.

This status gives access to courses, workshops, the Montpellier French Tech coworking space, numerous partnerships and a rich entrepreneurial ecosystem. It is also possible to apply for the Diplôme Étudiant-Entrepreneur (D2E).

A national platform to apply for the Student-Entrepreneur status!

Students wishing to apply for the national Student-Entrepreneur status can now do so on a national platform shared by the 30 PEPITE centers in France.

In 6 steps, the candidate presents his or her background and project. The application is sent directly to the PEPITE selected by the student.

The PEPITE-LR Commitment Committee meets twice a year to examine these applications: once at the start of the academic year and once at the beginning of the calendar year.

The next candidate selection committees will take place on: September 29 (application deadline: Sept. 20) and October 15 (application deadline: Oct. 4). To find out more

SNEE information webinars

As it is complicated to organize face-to-face meetings to promote the Student-Entrepreneur Status, information webinars are planned for September 2, 10, 14, 22 and 30, 2020.

These sessions will be led by the PEPITE team. Participants will be able to ask any questions they may have about SNEE, D2E and Starter. To find out more
