" Centrale and ESSEC students have showed much dynamism and entrepreunarial spirit. I think their journey to  Stanford and their experience in MoHo will broaden their vision of innovation. They will especially realize the importance of "open innovation". Good luck and come back from the USA with heads full of new ideas. "

Thierry Bardy
VP management innovation at Orange labs

" 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.
