Bringing the world to Rennes!
Jean-Baptiste de Bel-Air graduated from the MSc in Innovation & Entrepreneurship in 2015. He is now the founder and President of Steeple, a company that improves internal communication in companies through digitisation.
In this episode, Jean-Baptiste looks back at the moments that marked his time at Rennes SB and the beginning of what would become his future company. He talks about arriving at the school, the BDE campaigns, his international exchange, his teachers… During his studies, Jean-Baptiste had the opportunity to do his exchange abroad and decided to settle in Ecuador for several months. He also took the opportunity to discover several South American countries. “To travel in the way we yearn to when we’re young.”
During the last year of his master’s degree, students from Rennes SB and INSA, a French engineering school, collaborated in the MSc in Innovation & Entrepreneurship, which allowed him to create the foundations of what would become his future company. Today Steeple has 70 employees!
