Each year nearly 20,000 students in the Bouches du Rhône department are made aware of the entrepreneurial spirit via actions such as creativity workshops, conferences, team challenges, master classes, and 45 student-entrepreneurs from AMU accompanied every year by PÉPITE Provence. The class of 2021-2022 shows an increase of more than 40% in the number of student-entrepreneurs, and since January 2022, PÉPITE Provence also accompanies doctoral students and young doctors of AMU.

To ensure this awareness among students and to support project holders until the creation of their company, AMU has developed specific training and support, dedicated to each level of advancement of projects carried by student-entrepreneurs, and relies on the expertise of a network of professionals from the socio-economic world to customize its action; 87 start-ups have thus been created since 2016.

The Student Pole for Innovation, Transfer and Entrepreneurship in the Southern Region, has been raising awareness, training and accompanying since 2014 to the entrepreneurial spirit and the construction of their entrepreneurial project, students and young graduates of its 7 member institutions: Aix-Marseille University, Avignon University, Sciences-Po Aix, École Centrale-Marseille, École nationale Supérieure des Arts et Métiers, École nationale supérieure des Mines de Saint-Etienne, as well as the Rectorat de l'Académie Aix-Marseille. With the National Status of Student-Entrepreneurs, they can be accompanied in the creation of their company in parallel with their studies. More information: PÉPITE Provence
