Bootcamp Paris: Get support to launch your business project

If you are planning to launch or strengthen your business project, you will need some guidance and support to ensure it is done in the best possible way. To assist you with this, SKEMA Venture is organising the first-ever three-day online Bootcamp from May 11 to 13.

This workshop has been specially designed to enable student entrepreneurs to harness potential opportunities for their entrepreneurial projects. It takes participants through the process of formulating the framework of their entrepreneurial venture, creating and fine-tuning the business plan, and understanding the uses of the business plan for the management of key activities and attracting outside investors.

The Bootcamp is specifically for entrepreneurs who are being incubated in The Venture Factory and whose project is fairly developed. These entrepreneurs will receive special training and dedicated coaching to accelerate their project. There is a selection process for the projects (first come, first serve). Apply as soon as possible to increase your chances of being selected. If you wish to get your project incubated, visit https://skema.ventures/apply-for-incubation/.

The workshop will help you to:

  • Strengthen your business plan
  • Attract potential partners and investors for your project
  • Move towards acquiring your first clients

At the end of the workshop, the participants will have to pitch their projects in front of a jury comprising investors, alumni, faculty and serial entrepreneurs.

The deadline to apply is May 7. Apply at: https://gust.com/programs/svf_bootcamp

We look forward to receiving your applications for the Bootcamp.
