Online Bootcamp Paris workshop: Launch your business project

Would you like to fast-track your startup/business creation project and move towards the acquisition of your first clients? If your answer is yes, attend the Bootcamp Paris online workshop being organised by SKEMA Ventures from May 17 to 19.

The Bootcamp is specifically for entrepreneurs who are being incubated by SKEMA Ventures and SKEMA Business School’s academic partners 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/.

This training is also dedicated to students and alumni entrepreneurs with a startup and those working on a business creation project who are willing to prepare themselves for an effective and professional presentation of their project to potential partners, investors or clients. Central to this process is the iterative creation and fine-tuning of a business plan and understanding the uses of the business plan for the management of key activities and for attracting outside investors.


Three days of knowledge transfer – from May 17 to 19.

Learning outcomes

After the Bootcamp, you will be able to:

  • Test the relevance of your business model and strengthen your business plan.
  • Attract potential partners and investors for your project
  • Pitch in front of peers, investors and stakeholders to provide a clear, short, and valuable understanding of your innovation; move towards acquiring your first clients.
