SKEMA Ventures Bootstrap workshop: get your project off the ground

To help young entrepreneurs prepare themselves before launching their business projects, SKEMA Ventures is conducting the Bootstrap workshop at SKEMA Business School’s Sophia Antipolis campus from November 25 to 27.

Participants will get the opportunity to gain a tangible understanding of the stakes of entrepreneurship before making the final decision. It is open to students from SKEMA Business School and Université Côte d’Azur.

The three-day workshop will include two days of knowledge transfer and iterative practice, leading to the formulation and presentation of the first version of the business model in front of professionals on the final day.

After the workshop, the participants will be able to:

  • Understand the key determinants of the entrepreneurial mindset
  • Use the basic principles of business modelling
  • Pitch their business plan in front of professional stakeholders to provide a clear, short, and valuable understanding of their value proposition and business model.
