Get involved with common values
Digital transformation, entrepreneurship, innovation, responsibility , are major educational axes for IMT-BS and Télécom SudParis.
" The signing of this sponsorship is symbolic for us, explains Vincent Pascal, Director of Business Development mc2i Group, since as IMT-BS and Telecom SudParis celebrate their 40th anniversary this year, mc2i Group is celebrating its 30th anniversary. It is also the logical result of more than 10 years of privileged relationships with these two schools . We look forward to sharing our experience with students, but also to seeing them grow through the many educational projects we will be doing together. "
Proximity and shared trust that have borne fruit. Recommerce Group, founded by Pierre-Etienne Roinat and Benoit Varin, two alumni IMT-BS, was incubated by IMT Starter, the schools incubator . And today, schools are very well represented in both companies.

It also represents a special opportunity, by supporting their training, to support the education sector, research, initial and continuing training.
" We are honored to accompany these students," explains Benoit Varin, Secretary General of Recommerce Group. On the occasion of our 10th anniversary, sponsoring these two new promotions represents a new dynamic that is close to our heart, around our shared values of entrepreneurship and the desire for a more responsible technology . This partnership is a great opportunity to build with the leaders of tomorrow the foundations of an even more innovative circular economy. "
