" MoHo is a unique opportunity for two of the best schools in France to showcase their capabilities and to truly innovate for the sake of society. The students and organizing partners of the programme are collaborating together to organize such a decisive initiative, one which has a very high probability of becoming a standard on how to instill innovation in corporations today. Moreover, MoHo is the final stepping stone in taking the ESSEC-Centrale school cooperation to a whole new level and hence deserves our attention and support! "

Jean-Luc Placet

" It is of the utmost importance that a group of students so highly motivated by the blending of skill and cultural diversity, both at the heart of innovation in organizations, be able to expand their horizons and gain a deeper multicultural understanding of this phenomenon for the future. The dedication of this team of students from the best business and engineering schools in France to organize such an initiative in the most innovative culture in the world (the USA) is a demonstration of the importance given by Europe to such questions. Moreover, having witnessed the capabilities of these students all throughout the CPI 2008 program, I have complete confidence in their energy, creativity and ability to successfully undertake such an innovative and decisive initiative.
