Le Business, A Series

Forty years ago, Général Georges Doriot took the helm as President of the French Cultural Center. French-born Doriot is regarded as a pioneer of venture capitalism, a legendary Professor Emeritus of the Harvard Business School, and one of the founders of l’Institut Européen d’Administration des Affaires, which is consistently ranked as one of the best business schools in the world.

In honor of his legacy, the French Cultural Center / Alliance Française of Boston and Cambridge and The French American Chamber of Commerce of New England proudly present a special series dedicated to French and American perspectives on business—from startups, healthcare, and biotech, to cross-cultural challenges in a global economy.
