Entrepreneurship 3% of our 2023 graduates are entrepreneurs.

The mission of the Rudolf and Valeria Maag INSEAD Centre for Entrepreneurship (ICE) is to accelerate the entrepreneurial ambitions of INSEAD students.

We do this by providing inspiration, driving team formation, and facilitating venture development through activities like Start-up Bootcamp, mentorship opportunities like Entrepreneurs in Residence, and the INSEAD Venture Competition.

Aspiring entrepreneurs can also participate in our dynamic entrepreneurship eco-system by connecting with and learning from INSEAD alumni who have founded successful start-ups.
