As an extension to its worldwide teaching and research activities, EURECOM’s policy is also to support startups created in its research labs. This policy has been reinforced significantly since the implementation in 2006 in Sophia Antipolis of Telecom ParisTech’s incubator and its ensuing collaborative work within a new structure called "Telecom ParisTech EURECOM entrepreneurs".
Today, business entrepreneurs have greater support when skills are brought together in a single location. This collaboration has also further anchored the incubator structure in the region.
Recent start-ups coming from EURECOM alumni :
Two young EURECOM graduates have developed a unique system in France to exchange or resale card gifts on the web. Esioox.fr is the first site for exchanging, purchasing and selling card gifts in France.
Depending on customers’ needs and wishes, a gift card could be a source of frustration for some while being a solution for others. The authors of this innovative idea-Younes Souilmi and Issam Toufik-are two EURECOM-trained engineers who used the Telecom Paristech-EURECOM incubator. Both of these mobile telecommunication experts received their doctorate degrees from EURECOM and boast professional experience at ST Ericsson and Accenture. Their experience convinced them to set up their own business.

Seclud IT: Security for the cloud
Cloud computing is a rapidly growing area with a wide range of benefits for users. The main drawback however is security within the cloud.
Our idea is to use the elasticity of the cloud as a new way to build trust and security on infrastructures. “Our plan at SecludIT is to make all security devices undetectable, impossible for attackers to spot”, says Sergio Loureiro, who holds a doctorate degree in IT security from EURECOM.
How? First by constantly moving the honey pots and other devices around all over the world, and secondly by using virtual machine introspection. The end result is to create a continually evolving security environment with a fully automated system of detection and alerts.
