Our mission

Turn Paris-Saclay into a leading hub in innovation and entrepreneurship.

The Paris-Saclay cluster is an ecosystem with enormous potential. Everything is there to make it an international leader in research and innovation: universities, research centers, top-ranking engineering and business schools, laboratories of the largest French groups, incubators, etc.

The training, skills and experience are far-reaching and varied, with thousands of completely different profiles located in the same area. Unfortunately, interactions and meetings between people from different institutions are still rare. And that’s where we come in.


01 – Opening

Start In Saclay is an association open to all students wishing to get involved in an entrepreneurial association. In this spirit, we organize many events with other entrepreneurial associations.

02 – Entrepreneurship

The association is led by members who are passionate about entrepreneurship and the tech world, with the mission of supporting student-entrepreneurs who want to launch a startup.

03 – Sharing

Our events aim at bringing as much value as possible to the participants and allowing them to learn about entrepreneurial topics.

04 – Innovation

Innovation is at the heart of the Paris-Saclay project. Our role is to highlight the various innovations within the area.

05 – Gatherings

The University of Paris-Saclay brings together thousands of students and researchers in the major schools, universities and research laboratories around the Saclay area. Conscious that great projects are born from multidisciplinary teams, Start In Saclay is committed to creating synergies between these different profiles.

06 – International

The University of Paris-Saclay is the 14th largest university in the world (Shanghai 2020 ranking). In line with this international recognition, our objective is to promote Saclay entrepreneurship abroad and to discover different ecosystems around the world.
