In September, three students from Grenoble INP – Phelma, UGA and a musicology student from UGA started a club, called Radio Plaisir, to help fill the void left by students’ social lives, interrupted by the pandemic. Every Wednesday evening, they go live on streaming platform Twitch.tv. The recordings are then dispatched to social media. The idea of starting a radio station came from Matthieu Saussaye, who wanted to create a platform for entertaining and informing students about the arts (through music and book segments) and entrepreneurship. Each broadcast features interviews with Grenoble-area entrepreneurs, mainly the founders of tech startups (like Optimergo, Abelio, and Reveho), with the goal of encouraging engineering students to become entrepreneurs themselves.
