5th edition of the WEI3 A real gas pedal of entrepreneurship and opening on the skills of the future


The WEI3 (Week-End IAE Innovation In vivo) is an entrepreneurial weekend proposed to MSc 1st year students, which consists in making startup ideas emerge and think about their economic feasibility with a particular attention given to social and environmental issues.
This year, we will lead the students to formalize precisely the environmental and societal impact on the Business Model of their project.

September 30th, October 1st and 2nd 2022 at IAE Aix-Marseille

Supported by Pépite Provence and organized in partnership with the IAE Aix-Marseille Alumni Association, the WEI3 will bring together this year 185 students who will be accompanied by about 40 professionals from this network.

There are 40 teams of students who will compete to find an idea for a new product or service, and decline it in a business model.

On Sunday afternoon, the 40 teams will try to pass the first stage of the competition, by pitching in front of juries composed of professionals. 7 teams will be selected at the end of this stage and will defend their project in the final. The Grand Jury, which includes representatives of the entrepreneurial ecosystem of the territory, will then have the heavy responsibility of selecting the 3 winners.

The WEI3 is the flagship activity of Lab I3
Lab I3 is an ambitious institutional project that aims to implement innovative pedagogical approaches to impart the skills of the future. Entrepreneurship is at the heart of Lab I3 to achieve this ambition.
