On Tuesday, May 16, the International University of Monaco (IUM) and MonacoTech showed their joint commitment to support entrepreneurship in the Principality.
Fabrice Marquet, Director of MonacoTech, presented Monaco’s recently launched Incubator and Accelerator Startup program to IUM students, after which Mr Marquet and Jean-Philippe Muller, IUM’s General Director, signed an accord to develop a collaboration between the two parties.
The agreement will focus on assisting young entrepreneurs and their participation in startups in Monaco, as well establishing a link between the Incubator program, where applications are now being accepted online, and the entrepreneurial track of IUM’s MBA program.
Mr Marquet emphasised that the team is the most important element when assessing applicants to the Incubator program, followed by the business plan and the probability of the company staying in Monaco after its initial launch period.
After the signing, Diego Bonaventura, Project Manager at Monaco Invest, gave students an overview of the Principality in numbers, which included figures such as 7 percent of the government’s budget is designated to healthcare and the fact that there is one police officer for every 70 people. As well, unemployment is at 2 percent and in 2016, 520 apartments in Monaco sold for €2.2 billion.

For the first time in its 14-year history, Monaco's Grand Prix ultimate post-race party known as Amber Lounge will morph into 'Amber Summer' the week following race weekend. “I’ve been wanting to do this for a few years,” Sonia tells Monaco Life, “and all the pieces fell into place, so it was time. I’m very excited to be doing something new.” Open daily from 17:00, Amber Summer will take over 350 square metres at the Meridian Beach Plaza serving an Asian-style night menu, a late night menu and, for revellers, breakfast from 05:00 to 07:00. Unlike Amber Lounge and it’s wild nightlife, Amber Summer will be a place to relax, as Sonia explains: “You can come in your beachwear and have a casual drink, or bite to eat before heading out at midnight to the clubs, like Jimmyz, and then come back to Amber Summer for breakfast.”
