Attend the Bootstrap online workshop to consolidate your business idea

To help our student-entrepreneurs consolidate their business idea, SKEMA Ventures is organizing the three-day Bootstrap workshop from November 23 to 25 in a new interactive online format!

The objective of the workshop is to help the participants get their project off the ground. During the workshop, SKEMA Ventures experts and coaches will support you to design an attractive value proposition of your business idea for customers, identify the right business model to support it, and practice how to pitch your venture to investors and stakeholders, among other things.

The Bootstrap is open to SKEMA students and alumni, as well as to students from our partner schools. Coaching will be provided in French or English.

Learning outcomes

After the workshop, the participants will be able to:

  • Understand the key determinants of the entrepreneurial mindset
  • Use the tools and methods of business modelling
  • Pitch their business plan in front of professional stakeholders to provide a clear, short, and valuable understanding of their value proposition and business model.
