Highlights, events, news and campus life updates from Dauphine London - PSL!

Dear All, 

The new four-step plan to ease England's lockdown gave us some clarity to work towards. We are glad that the COVID-19 situation is improving in the UK and the vaccine rollout is progressing at speed. We are focusing on getting our Campus to open back as of the 8th of March, with hopefully face-to-face classes resuming in April. 

With Spring will come a new learning season with greater opportunities to upskill and keep up with new-found skills. This summer, why not enrol in one of our short programmes? Dauphine London 2021 Summer Schools edition offers a hands-on approach with its different Tracks: Finance, General International Business, Digital & Innovation and Sustainability Management.  

Are you more of an entrepreneur gem, ready to develop your ideas? Our Incubator is currently looking for disruptive thinkers with the next big innovative idea. What a thrill to read about Protect My Pet’s success, one of our current incubated start-ups.

I hope you will enjoy this newsletter and please feel free to contact us at dauphinelondon@dauphine.psl.eu, should you have any queries. Take care,

The Conversation Club
Keep Connected through Conversation! This semester our English department are running an online English Conversation Club. These sessions with Anna Jones and Mati Kaim will be a chance for students to practice public speaking English in an informal environment. Each session focuses on a new theme, and is a fantastic opportunity to discuss topics such as the news, politics, art, music, comedy, or science - anything goes, topic suggestions are welcome! Students may enjoy other related activities such as reading a short article or watching a video and then discussing it. The sessions are open to all students at Dauphine London â€“ PSL, mixing students across all years, classes and bubble groups.


Marianne Strange, Founder & CEO of Protect My Petan online subscription service with an innovative approach to simplifying pet health careTheir veterinary team delivers treatments for parasites direct to pet owners exactly when their pet's medication is due.  
1) How has the incubator helped you to develop your idea and settle your business? 
Weekly sessions with the mentors and liaising with other founders on the programme have provided invaluable insights when it comes to ‘best practices’ in managing a small and growing team during a period of accelerated growth.  

2) We heard you’re experiencing a fantastic business growth, what are the reasons of your success? 
Protect My Pet has grown month on month since launch as a result of providing a hassle-free and affordable service for pet owners. Wider economic factors that have contributed to our growth include a rise in pet ownership in the UK as well as a considerable increase in spend in the pet sector year on year.  

3) What top tips and advice would you give to a new entrepreneur or anyone thinking to embark in the entrepreneurial adventure? 
Build a business around something you’re genuinely passionate about and be passionate about the process. This will keep any entrepreneur going through the inevitable highs and lows of building a business. Finally, being a sole founder isn’t for the faint hearted so it has been important to me to surround myself with an expert team who are as passionate about our mission as I am.

Ready, Steady Cook! 
Keeping occupied during these times is key to preserving your mental wellbeing. In early February, some of our students put together a virtual cook along to get in the Chandeleur spirit with some super delicious results. Crepe cooking did not end there however, the UK pancake day was later in February giving all a second excuse to eat pancakes! Pancakes are always an excellent choice with savoury alternatives, simple to sophisticated toppings, there is something to please everyone’s taste!
