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.
