WHO IS THE CANTILLON?
We are all entrepreneurs. We have all created businesses, and failed many others. We know what you think, we know what you fear, we know what you need (and what you don’t need). WE ARE ENTREPRENEURS FOR ENTREPRENEURS.
WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE THE CANTILLON ?
Unlike schools, we work on your business case. Unlike incubators, we work with projects of all sectors. Unlike consultants, we have a structured program and organisation. Unlike accelerators, we do not focus on exit.
WHY SHOULD I PAY SOMETHING WHILE ALL THE OTHERS DO NOT ASK FOR CASH?
They ask for something far more valuable than cash: ownership. Their business model is to make money when they sell your business. With you in it, or not.
The Cantillon teachers and mentors speak both French and English, the slides and tools are in english.
FR: "Les supports de nos formations sont en anglais, et les formateurs parlent le Français et l'Anglais ;-)"
