About Startup Kafe

Startup Kafe is a pitching and networking event for student entrepreneurs where participants can pitch their business idea in a friendly and conducive environment or listen to the pitches of other students.

The pitchers have two minutes to talk about the concept of their startup. This gives them the opportunity to obtain feedback and inspiration to develop it further. It is a good occasion for you to explore your idea in an informal environment and develop it over the course of your studies.

Entrepreneurs from SKEMA’s partner schools will also attend the event, so it’s a great opportunity for students to diversify their network. Further, successful SKEMA alumni entrepreneurs will share their experiences with the participants and provide valuable advice. As limited places are available for pitching, we recommend you register as soon as possible. Pitchers will be selected on a first-come, first-serve basis.
