" MoHo seems to be a very innovative program because of the origin diversity of the team members and because of the selected subjects.
The Bell Labs of Alcatel Lucent will be very interested to follow the evolution of this initiative and to help as much as they can to turn innovative technologies and business ideas into new profitable and efficient solutions. "

Alcatel-Lucent Senior Executive vice president

" This meeting on how to facilitate the economic success of innovation may be promising. I do encourage ESSEC students to take profit of the experience of students from others backgrounds, as well as of engineers and designers. I also encourage them to take some ideas back to France to create their own company here. Good luck... "
