Bootstrap workshops: get support to strengthen your business idea

To help student-entrepreneurs at our campuses in the US and France strengthen their business idea, SKEMA Ventures is organizing three-day Bootstrap workshops. The first one will be held from October 19 to 21 at the Raleigh campus (in partnership with Raleigh Founded) and second one from November 29 to December 1 at the Sophia Antipolis campus.

If you have a startup idea and are wondering how to move forward from the conceptual stage, this is the perfect opportunity for you to get the right support. The objective of the workshop is to help participants better define their business plan and move closer to the development phase. During the workshop, SKEMA Ventures coaches will help 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 coaching will be provided in English and French.
