[CALL FOR APPLICATIONS] A bootcamp 100% for women in research & start-ups in Lyon & Saint-Étienne

From September 18, 2024 to October 2, 2024

In the PULSALYS premises
LyonTech-la Doua campus


The Lyon and Saint-Étienne University Innovation Center (PUI IMPULSE) is launching its fourth START(H)ER Bootcamp with support from the Métropole de Lyon, in conjunction with Les Premières AURA, an incubator specializing in female entrepreneurship. Applications are open until September 10, 2024.

Among the last 15 start-ups to emerge from public research on the Lyon and Saint-Étienne sites, only 5 were (co)founded by female researchers, although they represent 40% of the scientific community.

This is why PULSALYS, the deep tech innovation accelerator for Lyon and Saint-Étienne, launched the START(H)ER Bootcamp in 2021. Three editions have been held in collaboration with the Les Premières Auvergne Rhône-Alpes Incubator, which specializes in supporting female entrepreneurs. As of this year, it is being led by PUI IMPULSE, of which PULSALYS is the operational coordinator. This bootcamp is supported by the Métropole de Lyon.
