Telecom Valley is conducting the 18th edition of the Challenge Jeunes Pousses student entrepreneurial contest on January 23 at 5pm in Nice. It is a company creation contest that is open to students from the bachelors, masters and PhD programmes, and those who have the étudiant entrepreneur status.
As part of the competition, students join or create a multidisciplinary team and develop an innovative company in the tourism, social or technological sectors. These teams compete for six months and are guided at each step by coaches who provide technical advice related to law, industries, marketing, management, design, finance, etc.
Last year, for the first time, two projects were declared the joint winners of Challenge Jeunes Pousses – both of them were by SKEMA students!
