FOR ENTREPRENEURS, by ENTREPRENEURS

We have a lot of experience.  We train new entrepreneurs, help them develop solutions to interesting problems, launch their best ideas. We are a team of highly-educated, international, serial entrepreneurs who work with you to make a success of your project.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED

Our program covers all aspects of startup launching, from team to pitching, and including idea generation, sales development, customer acquisition and management, costs, value creation and price setting, etc. We took all the frameworks you can have in an MBA, added startup, design thinking and sales framework. We removed the content non applicable to startup. Finally, we streamlined the content to fit the sequence you need. 

LEARNING BY DOING

To create a successful business, you must know a lot.   And while you can’t learn everything you need to know from a book, you can learn a lot from books.  So, we teach top theory, but we practice best reality.  Turns out, reality and theory are different in practice.

 

WORLD CLASS EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND

Our executive team has a lot of experience building companies and teaching others how to do it.  We all have multiple degrees from fancy schools like INSEAD, BOCCONI, etc. 

DIVERSITY

We recruit the best talents from around the world.   We care that you have what it takes.  We select all ethnicities, genders, backgrounds, and ages. While we like people with good educations, diplomas don't build success; hard work and vision do.  If you think different and work hard, we want to meet you.

THE FASTEST WAY TO BECOME AN ENTREPRENEUR

It takes a lot of work and many skills to grow an idea into a revenue making business. Our program gives you the tools to succeed in just three months. And while we can't promise your success, over 70% of our entrepreneurs have customers before the end of the program.  We know what it takes. ;)

NO EQUITY

At The Cantillon, we believe that you should stay autonomous and independent. The benefits of the results of your hard work should be yours as long as possible. For this reason we don't take any equity in the companies of our entrepreneurs at this stage.

FAQ


Why should I participate?

This is the fastest way for your team, to launch a company, and fulfill your dreams.  Our unique teaching methodology ensures you the greatest chance of success.

Do I need to have a project or idea?

No, we believe teams of great people come first, then we will help you generate ideas and create a project. If you and your partners share the same intention of independence, autonomy and changing the world, we will help you find all you need.

Ok, I don't have an idea, but must I find one that have SOMETHING TO DO WITH AI, 3D PRINTING, DRONES, IOS, ANDROID...?

No, you don't HAVE to. We believe that a good business is first about solving a customer's problem. You may need to use some technology to do that, though. 

Do I need a business plan? 

No. We are looking for people from all backgrounds, including without business background. And, unlike others, we believe that this is a skill that you can't actually learn in schools, and don't have to learn by yourself. You are here to learn how to start a business. We will teach you how, and we will build a business plan together. 

Is there age limitation

No, we are looking for people of all age who want to start a company.

Do I have to have completed a university degree?

It doesn't hurt, but then again Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Mark Zuckerberg all did fine without a diploma. So, no.

DOES THE CANTILLON OFFERS A DEGREE? 

A degree typically requires one to 2 years study. We believe that you should use that time, energy and ressources to build your own business instead. At the end of the program you will receive a Postgraduate Certificate in Entrepreneurship

How do you select candidates?

We look for people who want to create amazing companies.  The program is challenging and international. We evaluate candidates on entrepreneurial potential, past projects and the desire to change the world.

Why Don't You Ask Me About My Current Project?

We believe that great teams are more important than great ideas.  Our experience has shown that once you put together a great team, the ideas change, no matter how far along they are.  Our program is designed to make your team successful.

The program is 3 months long, in Paris,fr. Where can i stay during that period? 

We can arrange your stay in a French castle nearby Paris.
