Shearman & Sterling is pleased to announce its partnership with “Total EDHEC Entreprendre” and the appointment of Paris partner Thomas Philippe as a member of the jury of the 2021 edition.
Inaugurated in 1994, the association “Total EDHEC Entreprendre” organizes each year a startup competition (Concours TEE) that has grown steadily and is to date the largest startup competition organized by students in France. With € 350,000 in awards, Total EDHEC Entreprendre wants to promote entrepreneurship in all its forms and has become an unmissable event for startups, large companies and the public. This is why offering the opportunity to young startups to take advantage of the prizes distributed by partners as well as to gain both legitimacy and visibility seems essential to us.
It counts among the partners big names such as Total, BNP Paribas, Réseau Entreprendre Nord, EDHEC Business School, LINK (think-link), Capgemini Invent, IBM, Salesforce, la Fondation Keyrus Foundation's, Honda Motor Europe Ltd (French branch) and Selecteev.
