IVY PLUS EUROPEAN LEADERS The Forum of Leading Alumni in Europe
IVY  PLUS EUROPEAN  LEADERSThe Forum of Leading Alumni in Europe 
Emmanuel Macron has vowed to make France a startup nation.  Across Europe, the limelight is on startups and big businesses.  Yet, the drivers of the economy are often small and mid-sized companies. They are generally well managed, resilient, innovative, in touch with market trends. They adapt quickly to change, thrive overseas and they create jobs. They do not believe in the motto "fail to succeed". 
We feel it's time to learn more about SMEs,
and why they are the 'heroes of the economy'.

In Partnership with 
Stanford Graduate School of Business France Chapter
