Julie Rachline, a French entrepreneur, participated in the latest Women Entrepreneur Module
On 17-19 September, IESE Business School hosted the third module of the Capacity Building Programme offered by the Empowering Women Entrepreneurship in Health Innovation (WE Health), a strategic EIT Health Campus project. Read the testimony of Julie Rachline, a French entrepreneur, to learn more.
Q: Can you tell us about yourself, your background and your connection to the EIT Community? Did you participate in other EIT Health activities?
A: Having founded LallianSe three years ago and expanding the team and our Experts community, I do have to understand all perspectives and drivers from all stakeholders.
The EIT community, besides sharing our values and philosophy, brings an international network, international perspective and combines all our efforts. LallianSe team & Experts are regular mentors and challengers of several pitches and contests.
We also play the role to foster interactions within Paris innovation centres, with LallianSe Lab at la Pitié Salpétrière Hospital. In a nutshell, EIT Health and LallianSe share ambitions, values, and Experts!
Q: Tell us about your experience with the Empowering Women Entrepreneurs in Health Innovation (WE Health) initiative. What did you like the most? How will you follow-up?
A: The programme was very interesting and very diverse. The keynotes and inspirational talks were of very high quality, and the participants were all very positive and contributive. They were very oriented towards intrapreneurial spirit, and I offered an interesting perspective from my entrepreneurial end.
Hopefully, the follow-up will be done via regular discussions and interactions, possibly working together on some assignments, sharing good moments and many more activities. I met wonderful people and inspiring women!
Q: What do you think can be done to empower and encourage female entrepreneurs?
A: Organise regular similar meetings, spend time in following up (alumni events…) and maybe introduce some talks and speeches of entrepreneurs in life sciences, CEOs and CxOs from start-up companies.
Q: Is there anything else you would like to add?
A: Just one thing: do not start too early on the Monday mornings, it is impossible for those travelling to be here on time! And, to conclude: keep up the fantastic job and let’s change the world, step by step!
