Silicon Valley. San Francisco. These are names that immediately provide images of dynamic start-ups and disruptive companies. It is therefore not by pure chance that the JB Say Institute – ESCP brought 121 students to San Francisco.
Francis C. Lang-Amiot (Class of 54) is a Founder of and Major Donor to the ESCP Foundation. At the ESCP Bicentenary Fundraising Gala in London on 7th November 2019, he announced he would be making a new donation of one million euros to the School.
Francis C. Lang-Amiot becomes the first ESCP Alumnus and Donor to make such an important donation. His contribution will fund the development of ESCP and the deployment of its international strategy.
I wanted to significantly increase my donation to ESCP to support its current needs. I have full confidence in the School and its Dean, Frank Bournois, to make the best use of my donation and allow ESCP to complete this crucial step of its development.
I encourage all my fellow alumni to join me!”

During his carreer, he worked for prestigious firms in the finance industry, such as Lehman Brothers, Rockefeller Brothers and Hill Samuel.
