About the Jean-Baptiste Say Institute for Entrepreneurship

Launched in 2007 and powered by EY and ESCP Foundation, the Chair of Entrepreneurship educated and accompanied people wanting to develop innovative projects in contexts of uncertainty and limited resources, whether as entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, students or executives. In 2017, ESCP Business School elevated the Chair of Entrepreneurship to department status and founded simultaneously the Jean-Baptiste Say Institute for Entrepreneurship.
