Startup Kafe: Pitch your business idea and network with entrepreneurs

Are you interested in entrepreneurship and startups? Do you have a business idea and are looking to obtain feedback or support for it? SKEMA Ventures invites all students with an entrepreneurial mindset to the Startup Kafe event on February 6, 6:30pm, being held simultaneously at SKEMA’s Lille, Paris and Sophia Antipolis campuses.

What is Startup Kafe?

Startup Kafe is a “happy hour” event where you can share your startup concept with other students, alumni, and entrepreneurs from The Venture Family through a two-minute “elevator pitch” (without a PPT) and obtain feedback and inspiration to develop it further. This is a good opportunity 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 also attend it, so it’s a good opportunity for you to diversify your 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. The last date to apply is February 2.

Students with an entrepreneurial mindset are welcome to listen to the pitches.
