The French government created a special “student entrepreneur” status in 2014, and students at Grenoble Institute of Technology’s Phelma engineering school continue to take advantage of it! This year, the school is home to four projects led by five second- and third-year students. The student entrepreneurs are receiving support from OZER, an organization set up specifically for this purpose. They also benefit from modified course loads and academic tutoring.
The most mature of the projects is Reveho, a modular, self-amplifying guitar that can be disassembled for travel. Project lead Alexandre Albisser is now on his second prototype. Another project, Solar Solution, is developing a self-powering solar drone. Culture Jo’ is developing an arts-themed board game with an associated app. Finally, Glob’Ems is an electronic system to centralize motorcycle operating parameters (RPM, temperature, etc.) and functions.
