Competitive intelligence hackathon


11 to 14 September, 1000 first-year students starting the Master in Management on SKEMA’s French campuses will participate in the Competitive Intelligence Hackathon: this is a week of creativity and multiplex interactions to address the challenges of competitive intelligence, part of our school’s DNA.

​Students from the MIAGE and ESIEA engineering schools will also take part to conceptualise the prototypes in mixed teams.  

Online content (videos, blog etc.), high level interactive talks, (event live-tweetS: #ieSKEMA), inter-campus discussions, coaching from professors onsite… all this will help students achieve their mission: to create an innovative offer of a service to set up in smart cities, ed techs or cybersecurity. 

During the inaugural intercampus conference on Monday 11 September (11am.-1pm.), the speakers will be Alice Guilhon (SKEMA general director and specialist in competitive intelligence), Eric Léandri (co-founder and CEO of Qwant, the French search engine – a competitor of Google), Renaud Prouveur (founder of the Spallian group and developer of CORTO®, geo-data management software) and Mélanie Ciussi (SKEMA professor). 

On Tuesday 12 September in the afternoon (2pm - 4pm.) students will hear Jonathan Karp (founder and CEO of BemyApp, SKEMA graduate) talking about Edtechs and new working environments, Richard Rey (ESIEA professor) on cybersecurity and Pierre-Jean Barre, director of the Institut Méditerranéen du Risque, de l’Environnement et du Développement Durable (IMREDD) who will talk about smart cities. 

On Thursday, September 15 (3:30pm.) the intercampus final will be held with the three finalist teams giving their pitch in front of a panel of judges: Pascale Xelot (head of start-up ecosystems at IBM) Pierre-Antoine Dusoulier (founder of Saxo Bank), Renaud Prouveur, the Credit Agricole “Mayors of innnovation villages” and Alice Guilhon.
