Quote: “At the origin of New Trading, there is my experience as President of SKEMA Finance student association. It gave me the taste for entrepreneurship and developing new approaches to give meaning to Finance.”
During my gap year, SKEMA Business School offered me the opportunity to completely devote myself to my entrepreneurial venture. In July 2013, I filed the statutes of my company New Trading, and, in September, we hosted our first conference.
If one does not look critically at the beautiful stories published in the media about various entrepreneurial ventures, it almost seems like business creation is a smooth process. The reality is quite different. Behind all entrepreneurial “success” lies a chaotic path, endless hours of work and many moments of doubt. To find the energy to meet all these challenges, it is essential to be driven by a mission that gives meaning to the difficulties one encounters. Before you start, take out time to think about the “why” of your project. For New Trading, it has been four years of developments devoted to giving more meaning to Finance. This message has attracted more and more financial companies that commit to our side to developing training indexed in our educational media: NewTrading.fr
