Startup Kafe 2019: Test the feasibility of your entrepreneurial idea

Startup Kafe, the stimulating entrepreneurial Happy Hour conducted by SKEMA Ventures, is back! If you were not able to participate in the previous event last October, worry not. Make sure you register ASAP this time to ensure that you do not miss the opportunity to pitch your innovative entrepreneurial idea.

For the uninitiated, the Startup Kafe is an event that allows SKEMA students to test their business idea by presenting it through a two-minute pitch. By sharing your ideas with other students and entrepreneurs from The Venture Family, you get the opportunity to get feedback and the inspiration and come up with the next big life-changing business project. The event allows you to explore your idea in a friendly, informal environment.

The upcoming edition of the Startup Kafe is being held on January 29 at SKEMA’s Sophia Antipolis, Paris, Lille, and Raleigh (USA) campuses. Are you ready for the challenge?
